Our projects

Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.

We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

Cyanobakterier i vatten


Around the world, the frequency and intensity of cyanobacterial blooms in lakes and coasts are increasing. This project will work with a real-time early warning system for risk assessment and forecasting of cyanobacterials in lakes, streams and coast.

The overall idea of the project was to test new, cost-effective technological solutions, for removal of pharmaceuticals and other CECs as well as antibiotic resistant bacteria, suitable for small and medium WWTPs and to disseminate information on new technologies to the end users.

AGNES – Aerobic Granular sludge – Nutrient removal and recovery Efficiency in Sweden

More stringent discharge limits and increased load due to population growth and centralisation create needs of upgrading and enlarging the existing municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Also expansion of housing areas close to the treatment plants increase the demands of retrofits and upgrades that are space efficient. At the same time we want the treatment methods to be robust, energy, carbon and chemical efficient, have low carbon footprint and facilitate recovery of plant nutrients.

Future City Flow

Water is a resource in a sustainable city and can create attractiveness and greenery. Right placed, green areas, vegetation and open streams take care of rain and relieve sewage systems. A pleasant and safe urban environment can be created in parallel with avoiding flooding and improving water quality by reducing emissions of poorly treated sewage.
