Several studies conducted at the Bolmen Research Station indicate that the local impact of the Murån river in the southwestern lake Bolmen results in significant browning of the Bolmen water, which is used for drinking water after treatment at the Ringsjöverket facility. This has a significant environmental impact and is cost-intensive.
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.

The growing population in Southern Sweden, as well as the industrial and agricultural activities, need a continuous supply of clean water. To ensure sufficient and non-polluted water, surface water and groundwater resources are crucial. Facing future scenarios of climate change, the Southern Sweden area will likely be challenged with droughts, heavy rain events and temperature extremes in the upcoming years.

Cooperation to develop a new technological approach for membrane filtration purposes with special focus in drinking water.
Biofilms have been used for treating drinking water for more than 200 years, but we still don’t know much about how biofilms work. This project is using DNA sequencing and flow cytometry to increase knowledge and better understand the role of biofilms in effective, safe drinking water production.
Sustainable membrane performance for drinking water preparation and wastewater treatment.
This doctoral project will deepen the knowledge on how water disinfection using ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) can be optimized and implemented at scale. The goal is to deliver a complete strategy for disinfection of running water in point-of-use applications and water treatment facilities.
Aquanet is a project that focuses on the study of the resistance and resilience of an ecosystem due to disturbances and environmental disturbances.
