The aerobic granular sludge (AGS) technology is an innovative, compact and energy efficient wastewater treatment process that seems to be mature for full-scale implementation around the world.
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.
AGNES – Aerobic Granular sludge
Aquanet is a project that focuses on the study of the resistance and resilience of an ecosystem due to disturbances and environmental disturbances.
BONUS CLEANWATER was a research project working with solutions to reduce micro-pollutants and micro-plastics in the Baltic Sea between 2017 and 2020. The project was…
Educational activities – a vehicle for meeting future recruitment needs?
This project is looking into how effective the educational activities are and how they can be developed to attract both boys’ and girls’ interest in a career within the water sector.
Microplastics have been found in the most remote areas of the Baltic Sea as well as in drinking water, but the real extent and consequences…
Flow cytometry – a rapid method to study bacteria in water
This project will fractionate different parts of the fingerprint and look more specifically on which types of bacteria is present in certain fractions of the fingerprint with DNA sequencing.
Future City Flow
Aging lines, changed climate with intense rainfall, large paved surfaces, combined with stormwater and wastewater ends up in the common pipes, creates major problems in…
HÅVA – Sustainability Analysis for Wastewater Heat Recovery
Can heat recovery be implemented on a large scale without unacceptable impact on the wastewater system and the environment?
Less is more
Micropollutants, or contaminants of emerging concern (CEC), referring to a number of various substances such as pharmaceuticals, biocides and endocrine disruptors, may have adverse environmental…
By successfully utilising anammox bacteria, the electrical energy demand can decrease, eventual methanol dosage could be stopped, the biogas production can increase and recirculation flows…
Membrane against brownification – ”GenoMembran”
Since lakes and rivers are very important for the water supply in Sweden, the drinking water producers are very much affected by this brownification. Today,…
Safe and energy-efficient water treatment using UV-LEDs
The project will deepen the knowledge on how water disinfection using ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) can be optimized and implemented at scale.
