In the 3-year project WISA, the aim is to develop and test new technologies to reduce pollution by stormwater from ports and other large hard surfaces. The handling of pollutants in stormwater is a challenge for ports. Active environmental work is in progress, and there is an increasing demand to reduce pollutants that end up in the stormwater.
In the innovation work in the project, collaboration with various companies and researchers is key to solving the stormwater challenges. Krinova plays a coordinating role in the project linked to e.g. the WISA testbed.
This project will use the water testbed WISA, where the concept is to use the existing infrastructure of e.g. the Port of Åhus as a “real life” test environment. The port in Gdynia, Poland is also taking part in the project together with the respective port’s local university.
