Research and commercialization partnerships

Our Wasterwater Treatment Department has a strong and successful history of seeking out unique partnerships with the private sector and research institutions.  These partnerships benefit the City and taxpayers and make a difference beyond our city boundaries.

And the same opportunity to create jobs and attract investment in the energy sector also  exists for Guelph in water technologies.  Like the new Solar Cluster developing in Guelph, there is a Water Cluster developing through the work of Innovation Guelph and the sector.

A $60-million clean water initiative was announced this week.  Guelph is part of the Southern Ontario Water Consortium which includes 8 universities and 60 industry partners.  There are five water-related research nodes and the wastewater treatment node is in Guelph. An advanced facility will be constructed at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant to house pilot-scale treatment systems.

I am grateful for the dedication of the professional staff at the City who continue to pursue these opportunities for the benefit of our community and society.
