Online Seminar, July 29th 2021 - How to take a further step toward net zero carbon at your WWTP?
Thursday, July 29th 2021, 10:30 - 11:00 a.m.
Climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions
Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane are key factors for climate change and global warming. Protecting nature is one of the most important challenges to help preserve the future for our children and the generations to come.
Methane is 84 times more harmful than CO2 over a period of 20 years. It has a 3 times higher negative impact in the first 20 years than the conventional factor of 28 CO2 equivalents that applies over 100 years.
Therefore, avoiding methane emissions is a crucial short-term measure to help halt climate change according to a new UN study*.
How do methane gas emissions occur on WWTPs?
WWTPs emit significant quantities of greenhouse gases. The Global Methane Initiative estimates that around 7 % of global CH4 emissions in 2020 occurred in wastewater treatment, which corresponds to around 672 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (MMtCO2e)**.
A significant contribution of these methane emissions come from the sludge treatment process – for example during dewatering***.
What role does sludge play?
Our free online seminar will give you valuable insights on methane emissions at WWTPs, its negative impacts and how you can achieve economic benefits by preventing them.
With the installation of an ELOVAC®-P degassing system you can, for instance, save up to 20 % in sewage sludge disposal, hence reducing your costs. In addition, the ecological footprint of the WWTP will be massively improved.
What to expect?
During our online seminar, we will delve deeper into this topic. Using practical examples, we will discuss opportunities and limitations of our vacuum degassing system ELOVAC®-P and answer any related questions on the subject.
If you have any questions in advance, please feel free to get in touch with me.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
