Clean Technologies Team

We believe that the key to securing environmental and economic sustainability is through the adoption of circular economy principles.

We work with our partners to transform plastic, forestry and agricultural wastes into value-added products, ensuring that land and natural resources are returned to being valuable assets rather than economic or environmental liabilities.  

NAIT develops methodologies, practices and technologies that remediate polluted land, and monitor environmental contaminants.

We generate knowledge and develop student talents for the benefit of companies and communities, helping them to resolve environmental challenges that have real and identifiable impact on our society.
