Centre for Research, Development and Validation of Water Treatment Technologies and Processes – CREDEAU
The mission of the Centre de recherche, développement et validation des technologies et procédés en traitement des eaux (Centre for Research, Development and Validation of Water Treatment Technologies and Processes – CREDEAU), founded in 2003, is to deal with the complex issues of managing the entire water cycle: drinking water treatment, water collection and distribution network hydraulics and management, wastewater treatment, and management of sludge and odours.
Thin-Film Physics and Technology Research Group – GCM
The GCM has developed a unique infrastructure for the study, modification and manufacturing of thin-film materials as well as for the analysis of surfaces and interfaces. Most of the equipment is housed in a shared central facility accessible to the entire scientific and industrial community.
chemical engineering teaching laboratories
In the chemical engineering teaching laboratories, students gain hands-on experience with instruments and equipment commonly used in chemical processes. In one of the labs, students are introduced to the classic exchanges (matter, energy, momentum) involved in processes, to instrumentation, and to data acquisition. Our other lab provides them with opportunities to conduct various common unit operations such as pumping, heat exchange, distillation and absorption, as well as process control.
