There are many research projects at KTH aiming for climate mitigation in order to achieve a climate neutral, or even a climate negative, society. Climate neutrality must be achieved in all societal sectors, and need to speed up in order to reach the goals in the Paris agreement of under 1,5 degrees temperature increase.
Here we will present ongoing research at KTH for climate mitigation. The page is still under construction.
Some focus areas are:
- Land use
Development and improvement of microbial cell factories
Development and improvement of microbial cell factories such as yeast and Clostridium thermocellum, for sustainable biotechnological production of chemicals and fuels.

Smart City Concepts in Curitiba – low-carbon transport and mobility in a digital society
This project explores the transformational change needed to make urban transport and mobility more energy efficient, low-carbon and sustainable. Read more about the project: Smart City Concepts in Curitiba (chalmers.se)
TREVOL (aircraft Trajectory analysis for Reduced EnVirOnmentaL impact)
This project is carried out within the Centre for Sustainable Aviation (CSA). The project aims to analyse and optimize aircraft trajectories for an environmental impact reduction from aviation in terms of gas emissions and noise. Learn more about the project: TREVOL
