Faster and Greener Purification Process with Carbon Dioxide
In order for pharmaceuticals to be safe, they must be clean of pollutants. Carbon dioxide can be used to make the purification process more environmentally friendly, which may seem paradoxical since carbon dioxide is usually associated with a negative climate impact. However, if carbon dioxide is recovered from other existing processes and if the use of environmentally hazardous organic solvents is reduced, large gains can be made both economically and environmentally.
Forest fertilisation with paper mill residues
Research at Karlstad University shows that sludge and ashes as paper mill residues can be used as effective fertiliser.

Continued research in weightless state
Solar cell research at Karlstad University has been granted further funding from the Swedish National Space Agency. This means a new opportunity to carry out experiments in an aeroplane in which micro-gravitation is created for the purpose of better understanding how the structure of the active layer of the solar cell is formed.
Ikea's journey towards sustainability on Sustainability Day
This year's Sustainability Day at the Business School centred to a great extent on the art of moving from talking to acting, turning ideas and plans into speed and action, since knowledge means nothing without the ability to use it. A case in point is Ikea, a company that tests different climate-friendly and lifecycle solutions for all products, from the book shelf Billy to the salad served in the restaurant.
