New design goals for wastewater management in a sustainable society
Sweden has a well established and stable technology for wastewater treatment with a good degree of purification. Meanwhile, the recycling of nutrients is relatively low and the process very energy consuming. A new pilot project at Hammarby Sjöstadsverk in cooperation with Kalmar Vatten, Envidan etc. investigates how existing treatment processes can be modified to increase biogas production, reduced the use of chemicals and increased nutrient recovery through the sludge.
