Our projects

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.

Ongoing Projects

Källby Water Workshop, Lund

Källby Water Workshop is an innovative test bed and an arena where companies, universities and utility can work together to develop the future measurement methods for drinking water quality.

Ongoing Projects

Measurement of direct greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment basins

Climate neutrality in the water and wastewater business can only be fulfilled if emissions of methane and nitrous oxide are low. We need good methods to identify and quantify these emissions.
