Ellen Edefell

PhD student


Ellen is an industrial PhD student employed by Sweden Water Research. The research focuses on reduction of micropollutants in wastewater.

She explores the possibilities to remove micropollutants by the use of activated carbon, microbial degradation in moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBRs) and in combinations with ozone.
