Come and visit a platform for research, development and exchange of knowledge and technology in water purification. The facility is national and internationally used by academia, research organisations, companies and WWTPs. Current activities include pilot tests for the implementation of the world largest membrane bioreactor at Stockholm’s main wastewater treatment plant, treatment of micropollutants and pharmaceutical residues, removal of microplastics, reuse of treated wastewater, increase bioenergy production from wastewater etc.
Tickets can be purchased when registering to the World Water Week.
Cost: 250 SEK
Transportation and refreshments included.
For everyone’s safety, this year, no large bags will be allowed into the venue or at any social events. We encourage all participants to drop luggage at hotels before arriving to the venue. Please be prepared for bag search at the entrance.
09:00 Leaving City Conference Center
After arrival on site, visitors will be divided in groups that follow
a guide through the R&D-facility presenting different ongoing
activities related to innovative treatment technologies of
sewage water and sludge. Each guide is a professional expert
working on site and that can therefore provide detailed
information about process configurations and outlooks.
Questions can be directed to the guides throughout the tour.
The tour will cover some of the main ongoing activities
Preparation trials for the Wolds largest
MembranBioReaktor for advanced sewage treatment
Pilot-tests with flat-sheet and hollow-fibre membrane
technology for upgrading existing urban conventional activated
sludge processed to MembraneBioReactors (MBR) in order to
significantly increase treatment capacity, robustness, efficiency
and enhanced effluent quality. In collaboration with Stockholm
water company for their reconstruction of the Stockholm
Reuse of treated wastewater for non-potable use
Combining conventional and emerging secondary and tertiary
treatment techniques in various combinations, optimized from
an overall sustainability perspective, the ReUse-project
established a number of treatment systems for different regions
in the world targeting various effluent qualities for agriculture
reuse, industrial reuse or groundwater recharge. Reuse of
wastewater for various reuse purposes without increasing the
total environmental impact and without increase in costs. In
collaboration with Xylem Inc.
Complementary systems for the purification of
pharmaceutical residues and other priority persistent
Tests and further development of the most effective treatment
options, including oxidation, biological filters, membranes,
activated carbon, enzymes, their combinations, etc.
Technologies are evaluated regarding overall environmental
impact and cost, but also their potential to adapt to new
developments in the future.
Demonstration of innovative solutions for Reuse of water,
Recovery of valuables and Resource efficiency in urban
wastewater treatment. An European project.
Innovative anaerobe system for sewage treatment
Complete treatment system consisting of
UpflowAnaerobicSludgeBlanket (UASB) reactor, mainstream
anammox and prosperous removal for maximum resource
efficiency. Includes some of the world’s most innovative pilot
tests with long-term (>2 yrs) operation of UASB and
deammonifikation in the mainstream for normal sewage water
(combined sewer system).
Increased biogas production
Development of different systems and configuration to enhance
the production of biogas at existing WWTPs with minimum
investment needs. Further, GHG-emissions reduction from
sludge treatment is a focus areas at the R&D-facility.
There will also be representatives of collaborating companies
on site to support visitors with any commercial inquires.
