DTU Environment conducts research within three competence sections each focusing on a set of themes to foster interdisciplinary work within the areas of:

  • Circularity & Environmental Impact
  • Climate & Monitoring
  • Water Technology & Processes

The aim is to develop our understanding of problems related to the environment and to depletion of resources, and to develop technologies and management tools for a sustainable society – in Denmark as well internationally. Research is therefore conducted in applied science as well as in engineering.

DTU Environment publishes annually more than 180 international scientific journal articles, 200 international conference contributions and 50 technical reports. DTU Environment publications are frequently cited in international scientific journals.

DTU Environment obtains research funding from a variety of sources including the Commission of the European Union, the Danish Innovation Foundation, governmental agencies, regions, research foundations, industry, international organisations.
