Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 622 500
Project duration December 2015 - March 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

From its start 2008, Hammarby Sjöstadsverket has successfully been developed into a world unique test- and demonstration plant for municipal wastewater. This project aims to significantly increase the availability of the plant for municipal wastewater for new customer groups through an upgrade and complement with technologies for industrial water treatment.

Expected results and effects

By placing the test bed for industrial water treatment at Hammarby Sjöstadsverket, the infrastructure, the expertise and personnel will be used to build up a corresponding globally unique open testbed for industrial water treatment. We are convinced that such a facility decisively will strengthen the Swedish innovation and exports in the industrial water treatment business area, as well as attract foreign companies to locate their development to Sweden.

Planned approach and implementation

The physical realization takes place in containers which following separation of technical equipment will be installed in pilot scale: - Chemical treatment - Particle filters - Membrane filtration including micro, ultrafilter- nanofiltrer and reverse osmosis (RO), modified membranes. - Adsorbents and / or ion exchangers - Evaporation - Electrodialysis - Electrolysis and electrooxidation - UV treatment - Sensors The purpose of this equipment is that new innovative materials and applications easily and flexible way should be developed and tested in the test bed.
