About

Waste Science and Technology incorporates all stages of society’s waste management – generation, collection, treatment and disposal of waste, including reuse and recycling. This programme is offered at Luleå University of Technology.

Overview

About the programme

The Waste Science and Technology research at Luleå University of Technology is aimed at the development of tools and processes that facilitate sustainable waste management.

We develop solutions to waste related problems in society and industry, often the starting point will be an advanced waste characterization which will enable us to predict how a waste will be influenced by, and will influence, its environment in a short and a long time perspective.

We use a wide range of biological, chemical, mechanical and physical processes and techniques, depending on the treatment needs and system requirements. We also work on topics bordering the social sciences, e.g. on the evaluation and development of source separation systems.

Programme Structure

Research projects include:

  • Simultaneous remediation of complex soil contamination in situ
  • Enhanced and Innovative in situ biotechnologies for contaminated land remediation (EiCLaR)
  • Spread and toxicity of PAH from tar asphalt roads
  • Sustainable management of PFAS contaminated materials (Less-PFAS)
  • Waste and material handling - Kiruna Sustainability Center
