    Abstract. The operation of wastewater treatment plants results in direct emissions, from the biological processes, of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as carbon dioxide (CO 2), methane (CH 4), and nitrous oxide (N 2 O), as well as indirect emissions resulting from energy generation. In this study, three possible ways to reduce these emissions are discussed and analyzed: minimization through the ...

  • Nitrous oxide emissions from wastewater treatment processes

    May 05, 2012  Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) emissions from wastewater treatment plants vary substantially between plants, ranging from negligible to substantial (a few per cent of the total nitrogen load), probably because of different designs and operational conditions. In general, plants that achieve high levels of nitrogen removal emit less N 2 O, indicating that no compromise is required between high water ...
