In 2016, it was decided who will realize the construction and installation of the new drug residues treatment in Nykvarn WWT plant in Linköping. Malmberg will along with Suez implement engineering design and installation. Skanska is responsible for construction of the facility. The total sum for the entire plant is 25 million.
With the help of ozone it is estimated that over 90 percent of drug residues that leave the body will be removed. The ozone treatment plant becomes a part step in the wastewater treatment in Nykvarn plant.
Drug residues affect the aquatic environment. Hormones, for example, proved to give fish problems to reproduce. Other drug residues found in our wastewater are antibiotics, anti-anxiety drugs and painkillers. The facility in Linköping is Sweden's first permanent large-scale drug purification.
Carl-Johan Legetth, President Malmberg Water comments:
"We at Malmberg regard this project as one of the more important in Water/Sanitation-Sweden. To be a part of this as one of the country's leading water treatment company is fantastic. It takes water treatment to a new level and it will be interesting to follow the development. "
