Removal of micropollutants at WWTPs

Resource effective removal of micropollutants

For many years we have been working on the removal of micropollutants including drug residues, microplastics, etc. We have among others worked out guidelines/recommendations for the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvårdsverket), together with WWTP in Linköping conducted pilot studies that have resulted in Sweden's first full scale facility for the removal of pharmaceutical residues at a sewage treatment plant, etc. We are also working actively to develop better processes and systems to achieve minimal environmental impact and efficient resource utilization while removing micropollutants, all for a sustainable future.
