Project Start of MORPHEUS

The project „Model Areas for Removal of Pharmaceutical Substances in the South Baltic“ (MORPHEUS) started on 1st January 2017. 

MORPHEUS aims at reducing the emissions of pharmaceuticals into the South Baltic Sea. The project will combine information on upstream pharmaceuticals consumption patterns with estimates of the downstream discharge of pharmaceuticals from a few selected wastewater treatment plants located in the coastal regions Skåne (Sweden), Mecklenburg (Germany), Klaipeda (Lithuania) and Pomerania (Poland). Additionally an inventory of the status of existing treatment technologies will be made available. This information will aid wastewater treatment plants and authorities in a future implementation of the most suitable advanced treatment technology, thereby improving the water quality of the South Baltic Sea.

MORPHEUS runs from 1-2017 to 12-2019 and is co-financed by the Interreg South Baltic Programme 2014-2020 | European Regional Development Fund.
