The WaterCampus offers facilities where businesses can undertake their own research. This can be performed at the Centre of Expertise for Water Technology (CEW) and/or the Water Application Centre (WAC), with the option of working together with middle vocational colleges and universities of applied science. Water Application Centre. The WAC is a fully equipped application centre. A unique location where companies and institutes can perform their research. The WAC is fed with a supply of various types of water for research purposes.
The WAC’s facilities include a research hall where test installations can be placed or built within the framework of a comprehensive infrastructure. The WAC is further equipped with chemical, microbiological and molecular laboratories including all the necessary equipment and expertise. The WAC off ers a complete analysis package in collaboration with other laboratories in the region. This allows for the testing and measurement of all the components involved in the research process.
