Methane Evolution from Wastewater Conveyance

Available as eBook only Methane (CH4) production from sewers is a suspected, yet relatively undocumented source of greenhouse gases (GHGs). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the “2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories” which states that “In most developed countries and in high-income urban areas in other countries, sewers are usually closed and underground. Wastewater in closed underground ...

Greenhouse Nitrogen Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Operation: Phase I

Available as eBook only Engineered biological nutrient removal (BNR) processes are used mainly to achieve improved water quality. However, BNR strategies could be a potential contributor to atmospheric nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions depending on reactor configurations and operating conditions. In the future, as BNR is implemented at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) around the nation, the flux of this greenhouse gas (GHG) to the atmosphere ...

Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A technique developed for the measurement of gas flow and concentration at clean-out ports was used to ...
