Ellen is an industrial PhD student employed by Sweden Water Research. The research focuses on reduction of micropollutants in wastewater.
Ellen will explore the possibilities to remove micropollutants by the use of activated carbon, microbial degradation and in combinations with ozone. Further, she will look into evaluation of advanced treatment methods with regards to future legislation of micropolluant reduction to identify suitable processes for Swedish wastewater treatment plants.
