This project investigates how brown water is distributed in rivers and lakes and how its dynamics are influenced by the hydrodynamics of this water bodies. Moreover, it aims to provide information of brownification sources.
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 influence of hydrodynamic processes on the brownification of rivers and lakes
Almost all nutrients (>85% of the total amounts of nitrgen, phosphorus and potassium) in the municipal wastewater is found in the toilet wastewater. The urine…
UV irradiation as a microbial safety barrier
This project will investigate how UV irradiation affects the whole community of microorganisms in drinking water.
Water dynamics on bisphenol-covered silica as model for water purification filters
Water purification can be performed through a series of processes, one of them filtering. To optimize the efficiency of water filters, it is important to…
