Controlled methane production from wastewater containing oil with double climate benefits

Start date


End date


The project will develop a controlled technique based on the spontaneous process, which would lead to significant societal gains. This by better managing and clean these types of problematic of water while energy is utilized in the form of production of methane that can replace fossil oil for internal energy.

By mapping the existing process and laboratory testing, the best process solution will be developed to provide the basis for an optimal plant for Stena Recyckling AB in Halmstad.
