Björn Vinnerås is a professor of Environmental Engineering since 1 July 2018. His inauguration lecture has the title "Technology for safe nutrient recycling".
Björn Vinnerås's research field is environmental engineering, with a focus on developing technologies to recycle plant nutrients from the city back to agricultural fields in an efficient and safe way. He does this within three main areas: hygienisation to prevent the spread of infection, the use of waste for production of protein-rich animal feed and source separating sanitation. An important ambition is that his research will lead to solutions that can be applied in practice.
