Many municipal wastewater treatment plants are facing expansion and reconstruction. Lack of space and requirements for sustainability mean that compact, resource-efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions are in demand. This project is about investigating a new biofilm process, with a bio-based carrier, to assess whether this process can be a viable alternative in future wastewater treatment plants.
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.

Emma Enström's phd project aims to investigate challenges and opportunities in Swedish water management policy as well as develop ideas for future water management policy.
Testbed Ellinge is a project whose main purpose is to create a basis for the Swedish wastewater works´ choice for sustainable sludge management.
Sweden also has a water shortage some summers. In 2018, more than 80 municipalities needed to introduce restrictions on water use. With source-sorting sewage technology, the possibility of using greywater for irrigating green areas is opened up.
Straw has an untapped potential for domestic biogas production of at least 4.3 TWh.
Major investments will be required in the next few years to deal with aging infrastructure, population growth, urbanisation and new emission requirements at municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). These investments are preceded by evaluation, design and optimization, which in turn require access to good data to provide security in the decisions made and to ensure cost-effective solutions.
Is the use of municipal sewage sludge on arable land a spreading route for PFAS?
Pyrolysis of dried sewage sludge generates a sludge biochar that can be used in several applications. VA SYD participates in the project Residues to best use to increase its knowledge about biochar and its possibilities.
Five water service companies are collaborating to run a testbed for drying, pyrolysis and productification of different types of sewage sludge.
