The Baltic Sea is one of the world's most polluted inland seas, with eutrophication, over fishing, spreading of dead seabeds, and toxic summer blooms of cyanobacteria, that prevent us from enjoying it.
The method is based on a product, called "Activated limestone", that has been developed at Stockholm University and can be used to bind the nutrient phosphorus into sediments.
Our method provides a less eutrophic Baltic Sea, it re-oxygenates dead sea bottoms, reduces algal blooms and improves habitat for fish and aquatic organisms.
In addition, both the fishing and tourism industries will benefit from a healthy Baltic Sea.
Levande Hav is a spin-off company from Stockholm University. It was started in order to demonstrate that the method is successful in real environments.
The research behind it has been funded by Baltic Sea 2020 and the EU (Seabased, Central, Baltic, INTERREG V).
