PROJECT

Sweco was the main consultant in the Recycling of Nutrients project funded by the Ministry of the Environment.  In the general plan of the nutrient use, the excess and deficit areas of nutrients in the Archipelago Sea’s drainage basin were presented as geographic information and area-specific action suggestions aiming for more efficient recycling of nutrients were made. The review included manure from domestic animals, sludge from water treatment plants, organic industrial waste, biowaste, field biomass and reeds.
