Controlling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from municipal wastewatertreatment plants

This research aims at controlling the processes involved in wastewater treatment to reduce emissions of CH4 and N20. The main objectives are:

- to quantify the emissions(at lab-scale and full-scale)

- to identify the underlying mechanisms of GHG formation

- to translate this knowledge into a mathematical model

- the development and testing of adequate control strategies
