Focus on the marine environment

Research, communication and infrastructure

At Stockholm University, successful marine research and education has been conducted for over five decades. World leading research about the Baltic Sea, as well as high-level science about other marine areas such as the tropical seas and the artic regions, originates from Stockholm University.

Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre's mission is to strengthen and illuminate this significant marine activity that involves over ten different Departments at the University. We are a combination of experts and communicators who collaborate with a wide network of marine scientists to improve the knowledge about the Baltic Sea and help society handle its marine environmental problems.

Advanced wastewater treatment can halve chemical discharges from treatment plants

Upgrading the largest wastewater treatment plants around the Baltic Sea with better technologies can significantly reduce emissions of pharmaceuticals and substances of concern, according to Baltic Eye’s new policy brief.

Baltic Eye highlights World Water Day theme

New times call for new measures and wastewater treatment can be part of meeting the challenges of society’s ongoing chemical intensification. New water treatment techniques have the potential to significantly reduce emissions of both known and unknown substances to the aquatic environment and reduce the risk of marine pollution.
