Renewable Energy

In Renewable Energy the researchers work with processes and components for transforming biomass to heat, electricity and vehicle fuel, and also the recycling of nutrients and energy from society’s waste flows.

Ongoing research projects

The project BBChina aims to establish a master course fully devoted to the whole bioenergy and biochemicals chain in three partner countries of higher education institutions (HEIs) of China. The master program “From the Field to Bioenergy, Biofuel and Biochemicals” will be a common and advanced interdisciplinary master program where the complex biomass chain is deeply analysed until the output of the biorefinery, to the bioenergy production, to the biofuel utilisation as well as to the integration with other Renewable Energy Sources.


Project manager at MDH: Jinyue Yan

Main financing: Erasmus+

BREEMRES is a research training programme that will contribute to this important task by strengthening the academic education and research within the field of renewable energy and energy systems.


Project manager at MDH: Patrik Klintenberg

Main financing: Sida

The purpose of the FuturE project is to give national as well as international students and professional practitioners an opportunity to benefit from the skills in MDH's strongest research profiles, by means of flexible web based courses.


Project manager at MDH: Ann-Catrin Davis

Main financing: The Knowledge Foundation

The project strives for research and development of technologies for optimal management of treated water resources.
