Water Research Laboratory (WRL) was started up in 2000. It represents an education and research unit within the Faculty of Civil Engineering. The project group leader (senior researcher Prof. T. Juhna) is highly qualified and acknowledged both nationally and internationally through his delivered projects and his publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Team staff has both the project administration skills and research capacity in water engineering technologies, in the fields of renewable energy sources, climate change and pollution prevention technologies, environmental and sustainability assessment of technologies and industrial processes. In addition, our members have broad experience from the past projects in cooperation with industrial partners and end-user organizations required for successful completion of the activities foreseen in this project.
Starting from June, 2020, the name of the Water research Laboratory (WRL) has been changed to Water Research and Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory (WREBL).
WREBL has a practical experience and theoretical knowledge in microbiology, chemistry, hydraulics as well as wastewater treatment, drinking water supply and safety, water resource management and also project management, entrepreneurship, and innovation. WREBL develops innovations for waste bioremediation and resource recovery that are based in natural processes and can be adopted to solve daily challenges. In addition, WREBL develops components for bio-based life support systems to purify wastewater and air, and can provide a food source. WREBL also operates a well equiped microbiology and chemistry laboratory.
