“GreenNano – innovative stormwater management” is a research and innovation project where 25 partners jointly develop, implement and evaluate innovative methods and solutions for sustainable stormwater management. GreenNano makes cities more attractive and helps create cleaner watercourses and a better natural environment.
The solutions can be found all over Sweden, from Kiruna in the north to Malmö in the south. Some examples include green roofs in Umeå; floating baffle curtain pond (skärmdamm) in Östersund; infiltration capacity of stormwater biofilter in Boden; stormwater biofilter to treat runoff from the E4 motorway bridge in Sundsvall; flocculation and coagulation technologies to treat stormwater; and treatment capacity of different kinds of stormwater biofilters in Malmö.
The research and innovation activities are conducted in collaboration with researchers from the Luleå University of Technology and GreenNano’s partners. GreenNano consists of more than 20 partners from the whole value chain, i.e. Boden Municipality, City of Gothenburg, City of Malmö, City of Stockholm, DHI, Gryaab, IVL, Järven Ecotech, Kemira, Luleå Municipality, Luleå University of Technology, Länsstyrelsen Västernorrland, MittSverige Vatten & Avfall, NCC, Purac, Rent Dagvatten, Skellefteå Municipality, StormTac, Vakin, VA Syd, Växjö Municipality, ÅF, and Östersund Municipality.
