Lack of fresh water is a growing problem in many parts of the world. At Hammarby Sjöstadsverk we develop techniques that will make it possible to reuse treated wastewater.
In many countries access to clean water is limited, which is worsened by increasing climate change. We believe urban water problems needs to be solved progressively. Our goal at Hammarby Sjöstadsverk is to produce energy from sludge while treating wastewater to potable water and returning nutrients into the ecosystem.
Solving the challenges related to water and wastewater will require a new and multidisciplinary thinking, where research and development are linked to demonstration sites and pilot trials, domestically as well as abroad.
At Hammarby Sjöstadsverk water treatment experts are working 24/7 with technology development, sampling and analysis. The plant is suited for the testing of new technologies and innovative solutions for water treatment and environmental engineering. The facility is structured in a way that allows a flexible control and interaction with various water treatment and sludge handling processes.
