More effecient energy use in industries

Sofia Klugman has worked with the EU projects So What, Retrofeed and Pulp and Fuel on energy effenciancy and waste product management in industries.

- Selling residual heat is a win-win situation: less cooling is needed at the industries, and heating of properties can take place without the supply of fuels that have a negative environmental impact and volatile prices

Testbeds for recycling resources in wastewater

Staffan Filipsson leads the project Innorec External link., which develops techniques to recover nutrients from wastewater. The project is a collaboration between IVL and ENWA Water Technology in Sweden and SANEPAR and SENAI in Curitiba, Brazil. At the Swedish side of the project, tests are running at Testbed Storsudret for a sustainable water supply.

- With a warmer climate, the problems with water supply in warmer countries are intensifying. Therefore, we hope to establish a twin test bed in India to develop more and better methods for water effeciancy and purification.

- A key aspect of the EU Green Deal is the shift from linear to circular flows. The results of these projects will lead to recommendations to the European Commission.
