ICU – improved carbon utilization in a smaller footprint
In the research project ICU, industrial PhD student Elin Ossiansson is testing a new process combination for more efficient wastewater treatment, aiming to generate an equal amount of biogas from the sludge but with reduced energy consumption. After two years of pilot testing at the Källby wastewater treatment plant, the results are promising.
