Waste water

We analyse a large number of components in incoming and outgoing wastewater, sludge and recipient water. Research is carried out at our pilot treatment plant, Hammarby Sjöstadsverk, and in individual sewage treatment projects, but also on behalf of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants.

We study the effectiveness of treatment technologies, emissions and the spread of water pollution, dissemination via sludge, the impact on and uptake into biota such as fish and mussels and into sediment. We specialize in analysing extremely low levels in order to monitor trends in the environment.

The most common chemical analyses we perform are the determination of inorganic substances, drug residues, flame retardants, softeners in plastics, phenolic substances and PFAA (poly and perfluorinated alkylated substances) .
