Using polymers and natural stone slurry waste, researchers at UBC Okanagan are manufacturing environmentally friendly stone composites.

New research has uncovered a new, fast and highly-accurate means of measuring contaminants in water.  It could mean rapid detection of different types of contaminants that current methods may miss including low-levels of pesticides and hydrocarbons.

Microorganisms growing inside aging buildings and infrastructure are more than just a health issue, according to new research from UBC Okanagan.

The age-old technique of dressing in layers is a tried and tested way to protect from the elements. Now thanks to $1.5M in new funding for UBC’s Okanagan campus, researchers are pushing the practice to new limits by creating a high-tech body armour solution with multiple layers of protection against diverse threats.
