Welcome to the Advanced Water Research Lab

In the Advanced Water Research Lab (AWRL) at the University of Alberta, we conduct cutting-edge research on the development of high-performance membrane materials, processes, and characterization methods of water recycling and reuse, particularly, in the in situ oil sands extraction industry. The research programs in AWRL contribute to the science of polymer and nanocomposite materials in various applications including desalination and wastewater treatment, energy, and pharmaceutical.
