    Resource-efficient carbon fiber electrodes for extraction of hydrogen from wastewater
    Research work at the Royal Institute of technology (KTH) and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute has enabled the development of a new type of carbon fibre-based electrodes. The electrodes make it possible to efficiently extract hydrogen from sewage waters with high ammonium contents. At the same time the wastewater is purified from ammonium nitrogen, which means a further environmental advantage.

    Study shows the environmental effects of scrubbing systems
    Next year, new legislation will compel international shipping to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions to air. But instead of using expensive low-sulphur fuels, the global shipping fleet is expected to install so-called scrubbers to wash exhaust emissions with seawater that is then pumped back into the sea. New research from IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute indicates that this scrub water will have a negative effect on zooplankton.
