A dynamic force in water and wastewater treatment…

Our Vision
In May 2005 we completed our successful spin-out from the internationally renowned School of Water Sciences at Cranfield University in the UK. The vision behind Water Innovate’s exciting contribution to the water and environment industry was to break new ground by providing, for the first time, an effective conduit for the transfer of new technologies out of the laboratory and into the industry, bridging the innovation gap that had existed in the sector for far too long.

Our Role
Water Innovate is the central driver in the cycle of technology commercialisation (see diagram). We have worked with water utilities and the School of Water Sciences (SWS) to develop solutions to water and wastewater treatment problems. We have then developed and commercialised the technology to provide an innovative range of products to bring to the international water and environmental industries.

Our focus is on commercialising the technologies developed with the School of Water Sciences and taking them to market either directly or through licensing deals. We are now investing significant resources in further development of additional technologies, as well as in evaluating opportunities to acquire additional portfolios of water related technology from various sources to bring to market.
