About us

A company founded with a strong goal and clear purpose.

Strong goal

Hydrex Research Center was founded to actively contribute toward the goal of clean rivers, seas and oceans. HRC collects, analyzes and converts information based on true data and provides practical advice to allow companies, NGO’s and governments to make well-informed decisions to reduce their own environmental impact and to improve the quality of the marine environment.

Clear purpose

Our purpose is to provide high-quality information and practical advice based on true data to companies, NGOs and governments on issues relating to clean rivers, seas and oceans and to help these entities take measures that contribute to our precious marine environment.

Advanced research approach

At Hydrex Research Center we have a clear vision about how we could offer the most valuable and high-quality information and advice. This approach includes complete independence without any influence or vested interest. We work entirely for the company or organization who hires us and for the good of the environment. We are supported only by the fees we charge for the research and consultancy. The information and advice provided is impartial and independent and we are not swayed by monetary considerations. If you hire us, you are guaranteed truthful results.

We are confident that accurate, unprejudiced observation, and continuing to look into a situation until all the relevant data have been gathered and tabulated will inevitably lead to a workable, practical solution for all involved. If there is no solution, we have simply not gathered all the information. We persist until all the information is assembled and then the problem either disappears or is magically resolved.

If the solution requires too much effort or strain to implement, then it is not the correct solution. The correct solution is obvious once found and invites the cooperation of all stakeholders involved. It is never complex. It usually makes those involved feel somewhat foolish for not having seen it before. But this is only natural.

We realize that when companies, institutions and governments are looking at increased sustainability, this has to be achieved within the commercial or other framework in which they exist and function. It must not be mere “pie in the sky”. Therefore when we advise solutions, these are based on a sound economic foundation as well as considering the optimum solution for the environment.
