GHG emissions measurement at WWTPs and Sewer networks

The Aquaenvec research team carried out two monitoring campaigns to quantify the emissions of GreenHouse Gases (GHG) coming from WasteWater Treatment Plants and Sewer networks both in Betanzos (Galicia, Spain) and Calafell (Tarragona, Spain).

Methane and Nitrous oxide emissions were analysed together with Hydrogen sulfide from around 10 different points along the sewer and waste water treatment.

Also water and sludge samples were obtained in order to determine water and sludge quality and also quantify removal of Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products (PPCPs).
