Ever since Aquafin was established, research and innovation have always held an important place in the company. By developing the expertise required for innovative supply chain solutions, Aquafin aims to tackle the current and future challenges in the waste water sector. The company’s research strategy is based on three major pillars: integrated water management, recovery of energy and raw materials and improving the reliability and performance of the treatment infrastructure.

Nationally and internationally, Aquafin is a valued research partner for academic institutions and research institutes. The company therefore often participates in research subsidised by Europe. The research budget that Aquafin receives from the Flemish Region covers small-scale research studies with small pilot plants and the necessary measuring equipment. However, once a pilot project moves from the pilot phase to full-scale application, Aquafin has to call on finance under the Optimisation Programme or the asset management programme.
