Metro Vancouver and UBC working together on liquid waste research Metro Vancouver and UBC working together on liquid waste research <div class="ExternalClass607AE6F845CE404DB839F1DE394169FC"><p>Metro Vancouver promotes innovation in part through collaboration with world-class researchers, and has recently signed a 6-year lease agreement with the University of British Columbia at our <a href="/services/liquid-waste/treatment/annacis-research-centre/about/Pages/default.aspx?utm_source=newsletter36&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=chair_update" target="_blank">Annacis Research Centre</a> in Delta. </p><p>The Centre was designed and developed to undertake leading edge wastewater research and technology trials, and to host related education and training. UBC was an active partner in the Centre's development. The agreement allows UBC's activities at the Centre to grow further.</p><p>This Fall UBC will be starting a Metro Vancouver-supported two-year project in the Centre's Research Hall to test a process called aerobic granular biomass that could save wastewater treatment plants money by removing nutrients more effectively and quickly. The process uses granular rather than traditional flocculents to increase settling without requiring additional energy or mechanical processing.
