Water and Environmental Engineering is part of the department of Chemical Engineering and is situated in the Chemical Centre (Kemicentrum).
Key research areas are:
· Advanced wastewater treatment with optimized use of energy and resources
· Removal of persistent pollutants in municipal wastewater with focus on pharmaceutical residues and other micropollutants
· Anaerobic treatment with focus on methods for increased biogas production from sewage sludge and urban organic waste as well as sludge liquor treatment
· Urban water infrastructure for handling of storm water and different wastewater fractions
