LIMIT – Innovative concepts for sustainable water treatment targeting PFAS and other critical micropollutants from point sources in the South Baltic Sea are (in progress)

The LIMIT project has innovative and adaptive concepts, including treatment technologies for both urban NWI’s and micro-pollutant hotspots, ready for implementation in the South Baltic Sea Region. In the long term, this will reduce the discharge of hazardous substances into the Baltic Sea. Sustainable recovery and removal technologies for the adsorbent materials used ensure sustainable removal of micro-pollutants such as PFAS from water treatment processes and resource-efficient treatment concepts.

The project will investigate different concentrations of PFASs using new and sensitive methods focusing on the analysis of priority PFAS compounds in different matrices. The focus will be on innovative and sustainable treatment technologies, the application of which can limit the occurrence of PFAS and other micropollutants in the Southern Baltic area. The LIMIT project will help to reduce or remove from groundwater and surface water some substances harmful to health and the environment such as PFAS, pesticides and antibiotics.

The LIMIT project is funded by the European Union, “Interreg” Interreg & LIMIT programme LOGO
