Our research encompasses the design, engineering, and pilot-scale demonstration of blackwater, greywater, and stormwater treatment technologies. Effective solutions for the treatment of wastewater and water contaminated by pollutants are needed in communities across the US and around the world, including in our home state of North Carolina. Increasing urbanization, a changing climate and water scarcity add urgency to the need for innovation.
The Center for WaSH-AID partners with local and international experts to develop novel technologies and commercialization strategies to address water and sanitation challenges. Our team works with industry partners and entrepreneurs to design user-centered technologies that are modular, scalable, and capable of meeting the diverse needs of communities in countries and regions of interest.
