Verum Group has a diverse set of science and engineering skills that enable us to complete projects in many fields or disciplines. From niche one-on-one consultancies or analytical services to collaborative multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder research programmes. See below for some examples.
Individual Recognition & Monitoring of Great Spotted Kiwi
Verum Group's Behavioral Ecologist Laura Molles develops a process to identify Great Spotted Kiwi individuals by their calls. A great project to help the monitoring and conservation of the iconic New Zealand bird.
Bioreactor for Removal of Nitrates in Agricultural Water
Verum Group is putting its experience in creation of passive water treatment systems toward a new target, the removal of Nitrates in agricultural water. This research will deliver a system to remove the Nitrates from tile drain water. For that purpose, we are trialing out the collection of drain water into a bioreactor on a participating farm in the Selwyn region. By providing, additional dissolved carbon into the reactor, we create a favorable environment for the bacteria to flourish and reduce the nitrate to nitrogen. Regular monitoring will be completed to quantify the effectiveness and of this innovative water treatment system.
