Drinking water sourced directly from the atmosphere
Clean water from thin air? Yes, nearly. With the help of AFRY, Swedish company Drupps has developed a system that captures water vapour from the atmosphere and converts it into clean drinking water. This new technology has the potential to lessen the burden on highly strained groundwater sources around the world.
Changing the face of Europe's largest industrial area
Through the creation of the world’s most advanced sewage system, in the Ruhr region, AFRY has helped give millions of people their river back.
Design as a tool in the fight against HIV
“Half of those who receive HIV treatment do not have access to monitoring. The biggest reason why is that the technology is too far away from the patients – the technology currently available is too sensitive and sophisticated to be used in the small district hospitals that are located near the patients,” says Andrew Oldfield, Site Manager and Deputy Managing Director at Cavidi.
In AFRY Sustainable Stories you can read about some of AFRY’s recent assignments and how we, together with our clients, contribute to a more sustainable society.
AFRY's vision is to provide leading engineering and design solutions for generations to come, and the projects in the magazine AFRY Sustainable Stories are examples of how the vision is transformed into reality.
