Transforming the water sector with sensor technology

How Ontario’s researchers are transforming the water sector Taking promising research from the lab bench to the marketplace isn’t a simple journey. But with a little help, investigators at Ontario universities are commercializing their discoveries. And the technologies they’ve developed — from high-tech sensors to artificial intelligence and nano-catalysts — promise to change water monitoring, distribution and treatment, both locally and globally. In Part Four of this mini series, learn about how McMaster University’s Dr. Ravi Selvaganapathy, Canada Research Chair [...]
