Waste management

Activities on a university campus (student life, research, administration, teaching, catering) generate a large quantity of different categories of waste.

Recycling scientific equipment

The University of Namur has received a donation of equipment from the Thuin-based company Quality Assistance, CRO. This equipment now contributes to the research projects developed in several laboratories.
