Our society generates large amounts of waste that represent a tremendous threat to the environment and human and animal health. But, just as important, much of our waste is a resource rather than just waste.To prevent negative impacts and/or to obtain valuble end products, we work with a range of different waste treatment and disposal processes.
By combining our research areas we can invent treatment processes and improve the understanding of the current waste treatment methods. Naturally, they must always be based on maximum safety, minimum environmental impact and as far as possible on valorization of the waste and final recycling of the end products.
The main trend of today’s waste management policies helps to reduce the stream of waste going to landfills and improves recycling of organic material and nutrients to soil. Anaerobic digestion is one way of achieving this goal and it will, furthermore, reduce energy consumption or may even be net energy producing.
