ERWAT Research and Development

ERWAT Research and Development (R&D) function is to provide result driven research that runs parallel to our slogan which is excellence in wastewater. R&D therefore, aims to improve effluent quality, operational reliability accompanied by a cost reduction, by evaluating technologies scientifically. This can only take place with the assistance of interaction with Universities, Chairs formed, collaborations locally and internationally and with the consultants.

ERWAT is also actively involved as an industrial partner at present with international Partners. Planned pilot scale studies continue at our wastewater plants which has beneficial impacts on the surrounding of informal settlements and the environment.

There is a possibility that these technologies may be utilised for water reclamation.
Research also involves active inputs in wastewater research throughout South Africa with ERWAT actively being involve with the Water Research Commission.
