Pentair partnership: Solving complex challenges
Ten years ago, Pentair was looking to expand its autonomous underwater robot technology to the swimming pool market. The relationship quickly expanded to other areas of the company and across university disciplines. The company opened an innovation center on Centennial Campus in 2011 to further engagement, and the partnership with NC State continues to grow.
While searching for sources of bromide in the Cape Fear River watershed nearly five years ago, NC State environmental engineer Detlef Knappe and his team found more than they were looking for: high concentrations of a number of unexpected industrial chemicals in drinking water, including one — GenX — that has entered the popular vernacular in North Carolina.
