New EU Life+ project at Sjöstadsverket

The project aims to demonstrate an innovative technical solution to sewage treatment, based on heat exchange. It is hoped this will solve treatment problems incurred by regions with a cold winter climate: cold weather impedes the effective biological conversion of different nitrogen species to elemental nitrogen, thus contributing to nitrogen-based pollution of lakes and seas.

Within the frame of the project a pilot plant will be placed at Hammarby Sjöstadsverk.
