Facilities & laboratories
Design, preparation, characterization, and testing of materials and processes for environmental applications. Focus on quantifying the risk of nanomaterials on the environment and identifying future areas of research necessary to realize safe deployment of promising nanomaterial applications.
As a water research center, we emphasize the importance of applied research, in which pilot studies are of crucial importance as part of the first stage towards the implementation of new technologies.
This laboratory develops water-treatment processes and technologies by means of theoretical and experimental studies. Researchers introduce photons, radicals, and nanoparticles into the water to study the effects of these reactive species on various water quality mechanisms and parameters.
This analytical laboratory, equipped with state of the art analytical instruments, specializes in analysis of trace environmental contaminants extracted from various water sources and studies their chemical fate. It serves all WRC scientists and students, supporting their academic and applied science researches.
