Nitrous Oxide Proves to be a Significant Challenge for the Water Industry

November 14, 2023 Uncategorized 0

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas and contributes tremendously to global warming and climate change. This makes it especially important for the water industry to address its presence in the water and wastewater treatment processes. With the realisation that N2O has a far greater impact on public health and environmental sustainability, it is imperative that the water sector understands its implications and takes necessary measures to mitigate its detrimental effects.

The major concern is the release of N2O as a byproduct during the biological nutrient removal process in wastewater treatment, which contributes to the greenhouse gas effect and contributes to adverse environmental impacts.
