In response to the challenges of population and urban growth, the technological innovations developed by Insight Environnement researchers contribute to economic growth that is more focused on people and the environment.
The role of Insight Environnement research teams is to put forward, in specific areas, concrete and innovative answers to major issues identified by the company:
Water programs focus on seawater desalination on one hand and also on aquifer recharge using treated wastewater and storm water. Our waste management research studies ways to improve sorting. In terms of energy resources, Insight researchers work on reducing non-renewable energy consumption and cogeneration. The company also focuses on ways to protect biodiversity.
Research goals include perfecting water treatment technologies, improving methods for capturing, storing and recovering CO2, limiting carbon emissions, controlling facility air emissions, expanding the use of electric vehicles for transportation, better controlling the impact of facilities, decreasing sludge production and recycling sludge.
Research is carried out on how water tastes and smells and includes studies of water treatment systems to meet the needs of emerging countries. Air quality, public health risk management and ways to improve transportation systems—through information, comfort, safety, accessibility—are also studied.
Insight is concentrating on producing substitute fuels and biofuels, on biomass and solar heating and on industrial applications for fuel cells.
However, we are also interested in waste incinerator energy recovery and assessing the potential of anaerobic digestion plants.
