Scope 1 emissions at sewage treatment plants

Scope 1 emissions at sewage treatment plants

What do utilities need to do to optimise their treatment plants to decrease green house gas emissions?

Details

 

Sewage Treatment Plants are considered to be a significant contributor of greenhouse gas emissions and are required to report on these through the NGER Scheme. What do utilities need to do to optimise their treatment plants to decrease emissions? Better information on the influence of operational practices on emissions from treatment processes, would enable process optimisation, potentially facilitate predictive modelling to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions, and inform decision making around process selection for upgrades to treatment trains.
