The goal is collecting and evaluating the practical, design based solutions to deal with water challenges and develop the blue-green infrastructure of the cities. The…
Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.
We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

Aerobic granular sludge, a new technology for municipal wastewater treatment plants – the state-of-the-art
The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology is an innovative, compact and energy efficient wastewater treatment process that seems to be mature for full-scale implementation around…
AGNES – Aerobic Granular sludge – Nutrient removal and recovery Efficiency in Sweden
The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology is an innovative, compact and energy efficient wastewater treatment process that seems to be mature for full-scale implementation around the world.
Aquanet is a project that focuses on the study of the resistance and resilience of an ecosystem due to disturbances and environmental disturbances.
Back to the basics: high-loaded activated sludge
Without the presence of enhanced nitrogen removal processes, it is possible to decrease the solids retention time for the organics, including the microorganisms. Therefore is…
Biofilm in Water Utilities
Biofilters have been used to treat drinking water for over 200 years. Despite their long history, little is known about these filters. Water is pumped…
Blue-green stormwater solutions
Furthermore, considering the expected tighter requirements in near future it seems also necessary to improve the effluent quality from the open systems as well. This…
BONUS CLEANWATER is a research project working with solutions to reduce micro-pollutants and micro-plastics in the Baltic Sea. The project will focus on innovative research…
Around the world, the frequency and intensity of cyanobacterial blooms in lakes and coasts are increasing. This project will work with a real-time early warning system for risk assessment and forecasting of cyanobacterials in lakes, streams and coast.
Microplastics have been found in the most remote areas of the Baltic Sea as well as in drinking water, but the real extent and consequences…
Flow cytometry – a rapid method to study bacteria in water
This project will fractionate different parts of the fingerprint and look more specifically on which types of bacteria is present in certain fractions of the fingerprint with DNA sequencing.
Future City Flow
Aging lines, changed climate with intense rainfall, large paved surfaces, combined with stormwater and wastewater ends up in the common pipes, creates major problems in…
