Evoqua Water Technologies is to open a new Sustainability and Innovation Hub in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, to advance the development of cutting-edge and sustainable water treatment technologies.

The 18 000 sq ft facility will be Evoqua’s centre of excellence for research and innovation, addressing emerging water trends including climate change, connectivity and health and safety.

The hub, which is scheduled to open this autumn in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville Tech Forge facility, will include a hands-on demonstration and training area, pilot testing capabilities for wastewater, and a state-of-the-art laboratory.

“The establishment of the Sustainability and Innovation Hub aligns with Evoqua’s strategy for success through sustained investment in research and development to help solve some of the world’s most challenging water issues,” said Ron Keating, CEO of Evoqua.
