State-of-the-art facilities to test and demonstrate your new technology
SOWC includes 10 post-secondary members located across Southern Ontario (see map below). Each brings its own unique strength and capacity in academic research, and research and demonstration facilities.
We have also established partnerships with the Grand River Conservation Authority, City of Guelph and City of London. In 2015 we signed an MOU with Ontario Clean Water Agency (which provides a full range of water and wastewater services to municipalities, First Nations communities, businesses, governments and institutions across Ontario) to support technology demonstration.
In 2015, two unique facilities for wastewater technology demonstration were commissioned, in partnership with the host cities and universities. The Guelph Wastewater Facility (GWF) is a bench and pilot-scale facility constructed adjacent to the City of Guelph’s municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and managed by the University of Guelph. The London Wastewater Facility (LWF) is led by Western University and the City of London, and located at London’s Greenway Pollution Control Plant.
