  • Collaboration and opportunities for future water and sludge management

    The Swedish national dissemination event was held in Kalmar, Sweden, on 10 April 2019 under the topic of Collaboration and opportunities for future water and sludge management: focus on IWAMA project.

    Presentations from the event introducing IWAMA project and recent trends in water management are available in Swedish.

Capacity development activities in IWAMA enable structured lifelong learning and expertise exchange of specialists working in wastewater treatment.

One of the IWAMA aims is applying energy efficient technologies in the wastewater treatment sector to reduce nutrient impact in the Baltic Sea Region.

Smart sludge management is an important step to reducing loads of nutrients and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea.

Involvement for the clean Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea Challenge network promotes awareness of the state of the Baltic Sea and inspires organizations in the region to join the initiative to make the shared sea resource clean and productive.
