In 2014, Unisense Environment launched our N2O Wastewater Sensor. Then and now, we work to help wastewater treatment plants reduce their climate footprint by measuring and controlling nitrous oxide emissions. Real-time online measurements of N2O allow operators to see the results of their actions directly in the plant’s control system.
Many other factors affect greenhouse gas emissions, such as the size and design of the plant, the composition of the wastewater, the weather and seasonal variations. Therefore, data collection from robust and accurate sensor systems is essential to reduce climate impact.
Denmark is leading the way in monitoring and controlling N2O from wastewater. This is partly driven by new legislation that will come into force in 2025, requiring wastewater plants to reduce nitrous oxide. In the same year, the Danish water sector expects to make a positive contribution to the climate. This is only possible through the close cooperation of an ambitious water sector where utilities, advisors, public authorities, and producers work together.
N2O Wastewater System
The N2O Wastewater System helps you understand and document the biological processes that lead to the formation and emission of nitrous oxide. Once you have installed the system, you will get real-time data from the sensor directly into your plant’s control system to monitor and control N2O emissions from your wastewater treatment plant.
