At Polytechnique Montréal, the CFI-MELS (Canada Foundation for Innovation- Ministère de l'éducation, du loisir et du sport) grant has enabled construction of laboratories, test wells, a Level 2 lab for work on pathogenic organisms, fixed-bench and pilot installations, as well as temperature-controlled rooms, with a total area of some 800 m2. These spaces are dedicated to drinking-water and wastewater treatment projects, and complement existing facilities.

The facilities available at École de Technologie Supérieure, with a total area of approximately 800 m2, include a pilot facility for large-scale studies, an instrumentation laboratory and a wet laboratory for analysis, a microbiology, physics and weighing laboratory, a controlled-environment chamber for simulating seasonal conditions, and a clean room for biotechnology and nanotechnology research.

A product- and process-design laboratory was installed in the Université de Montréal André-Aisenstadt Building in 2014. The lab is equipped with BALAS Process Simulation Software, for collection of off-site operation data in real time as well as data modelling for technology development.

A phytotechnology laboratory managed by the Université de Montréal research team was also built at the Montréal Botanical Garden in 2016. This lab is equipped with a phytozome including an aeroponic cultivation system as well as a sample preparation and preservation system. Experiments are conducted using plants in controlled growth conditions to develop wastewater- and sludge-treatment processes.
