NEWT will design, build, test, and monitor continuous-flow pilot-scale and demonstration-scale systems that incorporate technologies developed within the center as well as technologies developed by our industrial collaborators. The testbeds offer unique research and educational opportunities, and will encompass:


  • Drinking Water Testbeds for point –of-use/point-of -entry, rural, and emergency water supply

  • Industrial wastewater reuse system for remote, off-the-water-grid oil&gas sites

  • Brackish groundwater desalination
