Masterclass 3- “Monitoring, Modelling and Mitigating Methane in Wastewater
This masterclass series is organised by the IWA Climate Smart Utilities Initiative. The goal of the Initiative is to assist water, wastewater, and urban drainage companies in improving their climate resilience by adapting to a changing climate while contributing to significant and sustainable reduction of GHG emissions.
During this class, international experts in the field presented existing and recent approaches to quantify, monitor and mitigate methane emissions. The class brought participants up to speed with process emissions of methane from wastewater treatment – through presentations of key findings from a newly launched IWA publication and by sharing the experiences of progressive utilities around the world. This class was hosted and presented by editors and co-authors of the IWA publication “Quantifying and modelling of fugitive greenhouse gas emissions from urban water systems” along with special guest utility experience from Anette Wästlund, Sjöstad WWTP Karlstad.
