The interest in finding workable solutions for managing PFAS-contaminated materials continues to increase. A regional project financed by InterregNord and the Norrbotten Region has been initiated.
PFAS is an environmental pollutant that received much attention during the last decade. PFAS is a non-degradable chemical that, once spread into nature, will remain there almost forever. This property makes the treatment of PFAS a very challenging task. At the moment, there is no established treatme...

From mines and smelters some waste containing high levels of arsenic will occur. Today, this waste ends up at different landfills, but in a new research project, Luleå Technical University's professor Jurate Kumpiene will develop a method for safe final storage of arsenic.
Seven proposals were submitted in response to the CAMM2 call for high-risk projects. The Steering Committee evaluated the submitted proposals in terms of :
Formas finances a new project in Energy Engineering with approximately SEK 9 million over three years. The aim is to develop, in cooperation with the waste industry, new methods for treating organic waste, to more efficiently utilize existing plants and make use of resources in the waste.
Treatment oriented waste characterization
It is about the remediation of soil and groundwater by means of plants, chemical stabilization of contaminated materials and thin layer coverage of contaminated sediments. One of the projects is awarded to Luleå University of Technology.
