Research and development at the Ruhrverband

During planning, construction, and operation of its facilities, the Ruhrverband always keeps a critical eye on its technical processes and organisational procedures in order to find the optimum solution for each problem. This push for continuous improvement is driven chiefly by the objective to make efficient use of Ruhrverband member fees while fulfilling its tasks to a level at least as satisfactory as in the past or, if possible, even more so. Therefore, research and development at the Ruhrverband which focuses on its core business fields of engineering and science is not fundamental research but always relates to a specific case. Due to the Ruhrverband’s demanding tasks in the fields of environmental protection and public services, both of which are subject to constant change, it is essential for everyday operation to remain up to date on the latest developments in science and technology.
