The urbanization trend worldwide is putting great pressure on water and wastewater systems and wastewater recycling. IVL is involved in developing the water purification of the future.
With so-called progressive water treatment, we can achieve a more energy- and resource-efficient treatment and at the same time reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, and also utilize all natural resources that are sent to a sewage treatment plant.
At the research and development facility Hammarby Sjöstadsverk, IVL works together with other experts in water purification with technology development, demonstration and technology verification.
The plant's structure is well suited for testing new technology and innovative solutions in water treatment and environmental technology and enables flexible control and construction with combinations of different water treatment and sludge management processes.
Hammarby Sjöstadsverk is monitored around the clock and involves about 20 people from both IVL and KTH with cutting-edge expertise in water purification. Read more about Hammarby Sjöstadsverk here.
