The Sanitary Engineering Laboratory occupies an area of 250 m2, fully equipped with modern laboratory apparatuses and computerised systems.
An additional area of 150 m2, including offices and a presentation and meeting room is used for administrative and research purposes.
The Laboratory is equipped with all the necessary equipment for conventional and specialised analyses for the determination of pollutants in water, wastewater, sludges, solid wastes and air. Pilot plant units can be used for the evaluation of the performance of a variety of treatment schemes. The processes involved during treatment as well as the fate of pollutants in the aquatic environment are simulated by means of mathematical models, a number of them developed as a result of the research work conducted.
Field work including sampling and in situ analysis is facilitated by means of an adequately equipped laboratory van.
