  • Greenhouse Gas Inventories and Wastewater Treatment Plants

    ABSTRACT A greenhouse gas inventory identifies the sources and quantities of GHG emissions from a facility or a larger organization. Several best practice standards exist that provide guidance for conducting GHG inventories for industrial facilities like a WWTP. Key considerations in a WWTP GHG inventory will include emissions associated with thefacility’s energy use as well as methane ...

  • Composting generates cash for greenhouse gas benefits

    Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) recently finalized an initiative to develop a protocol for issuing offsets to projects that avoid greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through composting or other similar approaches. This article explores the development of the new protocol, reviews its key attributes and describes how an entity can earn tradable credits for its GHG mitigation project. In 1992, the U.S. ...
