IVL Swedish Environmental Institute, together with a number of project partners and through financial support from, among others, Swedish Water & Wastewater Association, has carried out a review of methods for recycling nitrogen, sulphur and potassium from wastewater.
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.

In 1981, field trials were started to investigate the short- and long-term effects of the spread of municipal sewage sludge on arable land. Initially, there were five test fields, but for a long time the project has been concentrated on two of them: Igelösa outside Lund, which receives sludge from the Källby Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), and Petersborg outside Malmö, which receives sludge from the Sjölunda WWTP. The project has so far had nine stages of four years each. The period 2018-2021 will be the tenth stage of the project.
Seven water and wastewater service organisations, together with two research institutes, have evaluated the conditions for opening up municipally owned wastewater treatment plants to test techniques for recovering nutrients from wastewater streams.
Government funds are currently being invested in feasibility studies and investments for upgrading wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) with the aim of removing organic micropollutants, such as pharmaceutical residues. What driving forces lie behind the municipalities and water- and wastewater organizations work with this issue and do the investments end up where they contribute the most?
This project will describe and evaluate rapid methods for monitoring water quality that are directly linked to specific interventions in establishing new drinking water pipes.
In this project we investigate whether or not the same groups of bacteria remain in the water drop from the water treatment plant to the last stop on the journey.
The project is developing a concept for online measurement of drinking water quality. Our vision is to be faster than the bacteria!
Future City Water delivers state-of-the-art solutions that secure our most important commodity - drinking water. The smart drinking water systems of the future are automatically controlled to minimize leakage, ensure water quality and optimize water use throughout the supply chain, around the clock.
FanpLESStic-sea is a project, working with preventing and decreasing the pollution of microplastics in water and the Baltic Sea.
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.
