Ellen Edefell

Water and Environmental Engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering

PhD student

Area of expertise:

Waste Water 

Research keywords:

Reduction of organic micropollutants, for example pharmaceuticals, with biological degradation and adsorption to activated carbon

Research mission:

My goal with my research is to increase the state of knowledge for advanced wastewater treatment both nationally and internationally. 

Core interest in research field:

Creating cleaner water and a safe environment

Feelings about being a researcher:

I appreciate the variation in my work and the possibilities to contribute to social development by means of cleaner water

Biggest challenges/opportunities in research:

My research is mostly based on long term experiments which does not always fit well with project deadlines and PhD studies. In the larger perspective, I see a challenge in nationwide implementation of advanced treatment for pharmaceutical reduction. But this is also where I find the biggest opportunities. I think Sweden has great potential for upgrading the wastewater treatment systems.
