NTU partners Agilent to expand water research

Published on : 20-Dec-2013


NTU is partnering Agilent, the world’s premier measurement company, to develop new solutions that will improve the biological treatment of wastewater. Using Agilent’s bio-analytical instruments, researchers can break the current bottlenecks in water treatment. They can better monitor the performance of microbes throughout the wastewater treatment process and thereby better recover energy to reduce the carbon footprint. In addition, as compared to chemical treatments, using micro-organisms to treat wastewater is more environmentally friendly as this technique uses lesser energy.
