3W Systems understand the importance of Universities and Industrial linkage for the development of current and upcoming water and wastewater treatment technologies. We are committed to provide local solutions to both municipal and industrial sector for their environmental issues rather than imposing imported solution, which are not deemed cost & technology effective for our environment. We are working as a mediator to promote practical issues based research by connecting academia and industries.

With our in house, fully equipped environmental laboratory we are offering research based internships programs to environmental & chemical engineering and scientist who work in real time environment on our projects and learn practical application of their acquired knowledge. 

Here is a list of Research papers related to water and wastewater treatment published/presented by our team members Muhammad Saqib Nawaz (abbreviated as Nawaz, M. S.) and Adnan Ghaffar Lodhi (abbreviated as Lodhi, A. G.) in internationally recognized journals or conferences.
