The QUESTOR Centre was the first industry-university research co-operative to be founded outside the USA.  It is an environmental research centre, established in 1989 to carry out environmental research on behalf of its industrial members.  In 1995, the Applied Technology Unit (ATU) was set up, offering a consultancy and technology transfer service to local industry.  The ATU facilitates technology transfer from research centre to industrial application; it offers a consultancy service, particularly in the areas of water and wastewater treatment, waste minimisation and energy efficiency. The unit has a suite of pilot-scale water/ wastewater treatment plant, permitting process testing both on-site and in the laboratory. QUESTOR ATU also provides seminars and training courses targeted at industry and has worked extensively with all sectors of industry, including food and textiles, in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
