What you do as a Medior consultant Research and Development (R&D)
The Research and Development team focusses on the development of new wastewater treatment technologies. Our main areas are, Climate and Energy, Water Reuse, and Resource Recovery. Within these areas you scout for new technologies and develop our own.

New developments often start with small-scale experiments in our own Technology Research Centre.
