Real greywater from student flats is diverted to the testing facility. The facility can be used for the testing of a range of technologies at pilot scale for the treatment of greywater. 

The technologies tested to date include: 

  • constructed wetlands (horizontal and vertical flow reed beds, cascading reed bed and green roof),
  • membrane bioreactor,
  • membrane photocatalytic reactor,
  • membranes,
  • biological aerated filter. 

The greywater was also used for lab trials for disinfection technologies as well as other treatment technologies such as adsorption coagulation and photo-catalysis.
