Environmental pollutants

Environmental pollutants in surface water can be derived from today's industries and households, but are also a result of old emissions and polluted land.

Our projects to reduce environmental pollutants:

 

Measures for emission reduction of pollutants

Coordination of sampling of contaminants and identification of measures for emission reduction of contaminants in water, biota and sediments.

 

Remediate contaminated areas

Testing and evaluation of biological methods to remediate contaminated areas, using biomass forestry (salix).

 

Boat bottom washes

Construction of two boat bottom washes, in Stockholm and in Västerås, to limit the use of toxic anti-fouling.
