As global environmental pressures increase there is a need for new tools and technologies for monitoring, prevention and mitigation of these pressures and their associated health risks.  Using its expertise in new materials, sensors, communications systems and modelling Tyndall National Institute is developing new smart systems and demonstrating their impact by deploying them in real environmental scenarios.  Tyndall environmental systems research is focused on applications in:

  • Water quality monitoring and treatment
  • Flood risk alert and management
  • Air quality monitoring
  • Soil quality monitoring

Tyndall is engaged in research and demonstration projects involving large multi-nationals and indigenous Irish companies through EU, national and direct contract research and is committed to the development of new technologies for a greener and safer environment.
