The WaCCliM has demonstrated that water and wastewater emissions are relevant to reaching net zero emissions and can contribute significantly to methane reductions. To leverage the sector’s mitigation potential, water and wastewater emissions should be considered in national GHG inventories. The Global Methane Pledge, in particular, can only succeed if solutions for low GHG wastewater management are scaled up.
The “Energy Performance and Carbon Emissions Assessment and Monitoring Tool” (ECAM) offers unique capabilities for assessing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption of water and sanitation systems. Gain greater insights by identifying areas to reduce GHG emissions, increase energy savings and improve overall efficiencies to reduce costs.
La “Herramienta de Evaluación y Monitoreo del Desempeño Energético y Emisiones de Carbono” (ECAM) ofrece capacidades excepcionales para evaluar las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) y el consumo de energía en sistemas de agua y saneamiento. Obtenga nuevas perspectivas al identificar áreas de oportunidad para reducir las emisiones de GEI, aumentar el ahorro de energía y mejorar la eficiencia general para reducir costos.
This document intends to depict the existing situation in Chihuahua City, capital of the state of Chihuahua, in the northern region of Mexico, including its climate context, water situation, wastewater treatment infrastructure, and greenhouse gas emissions from this process. To achieve this goal, the methodology of this project comprises an extensive literature research on climate change, the context of Mexico, and international case studies; communication with organizations and authorities in Chihuahua that provide valuable data and information, and calculations based on literature and on the guidelines of WaCCliM.
