“The biggest change was the knowledge we gained about our nitrous oxide sources at the Flensburg wastewater treatment plant.”
Plans for efficient management
In the future, nitrous oxide measurements will provide data for Flensburg wastewater treatment plant’s CO2-equivalent accounting on their road to climate neutrality.
Jan Philipp has further plans for the system: “One of our next steps for the N2O Wastewater System is to integrate it into our process control system. We are also considering a possible use for the control of our C-source dosing. Furthermore, we want to gain knowledge about possible fluctuations in nitrous oxide formation through long-term use at a measuring point. Our goal will then be to take countermeasures to achieve an improvement of the wastewater treatment plant.”
