feature lab without walls webinar

Take a deep dive into our webinar with Engineers Australia & University of Sunshine Coast to hear from industry experts about innovative collaborative research projects highlighting the value of independent device testing for effective and compliant stormwater management – and their relationship with SQIDEP.

This exclusive webinar will explore the research partnership between Atlan and UniSC – a growing regional education and research hub. Together, we have embarked on a mission to assess the pollutant removal efficiency of stormwater devices and overcome the challenges of meeting state construction guidelines with traditional event monitoring techniques.

We will provide invaluable insights gained through this collaborative research, emphasising the significance of rigorous testing in determining the efficacy of their devices. 

At the heart of this collaborative research endeavour lies a novel approach: turning real-world sites into field-based laboratories. UniSC researchers have transformed field monitoring sites into real-world laboratory testing grounds by simulating stormwater event conditions to collect device performance data.
