Teaching & learning

The WASH R&D Centre has developed a wealth of knowledge in our 50+ year history. We share this knowledge in our courses, training materials and videos.

Laboratory Facilities

The WASH R&D Centre is home to state-of-the-art bioprocessing laboratory containing equipment for the analysis of sanitation and wastewater streams.

Sanitation facilities

At our sanitation facilities you are able to view the various technologies implemented in Durban, obtain samples and implement research projects.

Sharing of data

While running our projects, an extensive database has been compiled of the characteristics of FS, urine and wastewater from different sanitation systems.


The WASH R&D Centre has a number of expert researchers (in a number of fields) that are available to consult on projects and research that your organisation requires.
