CREDEAU FACILITY

Polytechnique opens the doors to its laboratories

The Centre for Research, Development and Validation of Technologies and Processes in Water Treatment (Centre de recherche, développement et validation des technologies et procédés de traitement des eaux (CREDEAU)) invites you to take a virtual tour of its facilities.

Minister Joly’s briefing at Polytechnique

During a meeting held in the laboratory of the CREDEAU and the NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Drinking-Water Treatment and Distribution, Minister Joly reported on the main scientific research and innovation measures announced in the federal budget.

Research

Research themes of the CREDEAU will embrace the whole water cycle: drinking water, wastewater, industrial wastewater, stormwater and sewer overflows, sludge management and odor treatments.

The Centre de recherche, développement et validation des technologies et procédés de traitement des eaux (CREDEAU), founded in 2003, is a centre for research, development and validation of water-treatment technologies and processes. The Centre is a working consortium established by four Montréal universities: Polytechnique Montréal, Université de Montréal, École de Technologie Supérieure and McGill University.
 

The CREDEAU technology platform is unique in Canada. The facility provides researchers with leading-edge equipment for testing and validation of most water-treatment technologies at all three scales of demonstration: bench-scale jar testing, laboratory-scale pilot testing, and full-scale on-site prototype testing.
 

To help reach its objectives, CREDEAU has a budget of $17.3 million, which includes a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) for the construction of new research laboratories, acquisition of state-of-the art analytical equipment, and purchase of various new water-treatment technologies.
 

CREDEAU’s research interests encompass the entire water cycle: drinking water, wastewater, industrial wastewater, stormwater and sewer overflows, as well as sludge management and odour treatment.

Reopened Schools Find Health Risks in Water After Covid-19 Lockdowns
August 27, 2020, New York Times
A number of schools found the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ disease in their water, and experts say more should expect to see it. The new coronavirus is not the only illness that teachers, students, parents and staff will have to worry about as some schools attempt to reopen this fall. Legionella could lurk in the water supplies of school buildings, and some measures to keep people in schools safe from coronavirus may even increase risks from deadly illnesses caused by the bacteria.
