Welcome to Prof. Banu Örmeci’s research website!

Since joining Carleton from Duke University in 2005, I have established an innovative and internationally recognized research program on water, and my research group has made important contributions to the advancement of science, technology, and practice.

My research program focuses on wastewater and biosolids treatment, removal of biological and chemical contaminants, development of new, innovative, sustainable and cost-effective treatment technologies, and improvement of treatment processes at treatment plants.

My research is directly related to the protection of public health and environment, and aims to offer solutions to not only global problems but also to specific issues faced in Canada.

I am currently the Jarislowsky Chair in Water and Health and the Director of the Global Water Institute at Carleton University.

I have published more than 70 peer-reviewed journal publications and 90 conference papers, and have 9 international patents (issued or pending) that are being developed into full-scale commercial technologies.
