Our research plan is based on providing a new product solution that has positive impact on our drinking water sources. Our main research and development topic is to develop an environmental monitoring network for water quality assurance.
Groundwater accounts for over 97% of all freshwaters available on earth, yet contamination is threatening this water resource.
IPM develops pollutant-sensors for continuous monitoring of water quality in water environments like water works and wells.
IPM's solution is cost effective and time saving and delivers high quality measurements directly to your computer.
