IVL

IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute Ltd

Partner description

IVL is Sweden's largest organisation within environmental research, with about 200 employees. IVL is based on the idea that the government, through the Swedish EPA, together with the industry share the cost of environmental research within a particular framework. IVL is operated in the form of a limited non-profit organisation.
IVL receives support for research via grants from national and international grant-awarding agencies. IVL also provides consultation services in which the results of up to date research are effectively incorporated. The institute covers a broad range of environmental services. Several research projects have been performed with funding from the European Union, also with IVL as coordinator. IVL has a long experience in applied environmental technology and environmental effect evaluations.
The institute applies a holistic view based on life-cycle methods for assessment of techniques and processes. IVL has participated in the European standardisation of LCA work.

Partner interest in the project

IVL is deeply involved within research and development of new and innovative wastewater treatment techniques as well as data management techniques at wastewater treatment plants. IVL is, together with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), running a wastewater treatment pilot-plant research facility; Hammarby Sjöstadsverk (www.sjostadsverket.se), where a number of on-going projects are testing and evaluating new innovative wastewater treatment techniques, such as removal of pharmaceutical elements, reuse of treated wastewater and increased biogas production. Involved in some of these projects are also CERLIC (the Swedish SME within DIAMOND).  IVL is also working with process modelling and data management within wastewater treatment plants, where a large focus is put on energy efficiency and life-cycle assessments of the new treatment techniques. Since the DIAMOND project is covering data management and process modelling at wastewater treatment plants this fits perfectly within the framework of interest for IVL.

Partner role in the project

Within DIAMOND, IVL is defined as an RTD organisation and will be responsible for the tasks dealing with the development of soft sensor models and sensor fault detection models. IVL will, within these tasks, both carry through a majority of the work with the measurement campaigns at the Swedish case study WWTP; that is Bromma WWTP in Stockholm, as well as the development of data process models. Alongside, IVL will also support the Swedish SME (CERLIC) and End-User (SVVAAB) within their respective tasks.
