This is the PhD project of Maja Ekblad. Maja is an industrial PhD student at Sweden Water Research and Lund University.
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.

This is Misagh Mottaghi’s PhD project. Misagh is an industrial PhD student at Sweden Water Research and doing her PhD at the Department of Architecture and Built Environment at Lund University.
ÖReWise's main purpose was to form the basis for the development and implementation of solutions in climate adaptation with a focus on a holistic view for the region.
This work kick-started AI (artificial intelligence) for pipe management among Swedish water utilities.
Urban flooding is an increasing problem, both in Sweden and in the world. One reason is climate change, but the main reasons are that our societies are not designed to handle extreme downpours. It is also unclear which public bodies are responsible for minimizing the risks.
Approximately half of the micropollutants in municipal wastewater are removed in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) through adsorption or biological degradation. However, the knowledge about this removal is inadequate.
Previous studies show that the potential to make municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) more energy efficient is great. The largest energy use at WWTPs is found in the aeration of the biological processes in the wastewater treatment.
During 2021-2022 bromate formation in ozonation and regeneration of activated carbon were investigated at Sjölunda wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) within a prestudy for a rebuild of the wastewater treatment plant in order to meet a growing population. The project was financed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket).
This project investigates the biological status of the drinking water distribution system, with a focus on biostability and measures for securing a stable drinking water quality.
Source separated wastewater systems enable a circular economy through the return of plant nutrients, reduced water use, reduced energy use, increased biogas production and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
The world food supply is entirely dependent on the use of fertilisers. However, the current fertiliser production practices are not sustainable. Domestic wastewater is an important carrier of resources: especially water, energy and nutrients. In the current centralised wastewater management systems these resources are hardly recovered.
NPHarvest is a technology, developed by Aalto University, to extract phosphorus and nitrogen from highly concentrated wastewater streams such as digested black water or reject water from the digestion of sewage sludge. The technology has been tested on a pilot scale at RecoLab.
