Access to a fully equipped research laboratory
The PRG is home to a bioprocessing laboratory containing equipment for the analysis of sanitation and wastewater streams. Equipment is purchased using funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the South African Water Research Commission, as well as industrial partners such as Sasol. Researchers have access to the use of these facilities for the analysis of FS samples after undergoing a health and safety induction and training in specific experimental procedures. In some cases, only PRG laboratory technicians are allowed to operate the equipment and these cases, researchers assist through sample preparation and observation.
