The Optimization of Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Odor Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plant

Ji Ye Yoo, Eun Ji Woo, and Chan Jin Park
Abstract—Wastewater treatment generates significant amount of greenhouse gases mainly methane and nitrous oxide. Therefore, reducing these emissions from the treatment process and the contribution of the wastewater treatment processes to global warming is a major concern. Also, odors can be generated and released from virtually all phases of wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal. Most odor-producing compounds found in domestic wastewater and in the removed solids result from anaerobic biological activity that consumes organic material, sulfur, and nitrogen found in the wastewater. In this study, estimation of greenhouse gas and reduction of greenhouse gas and odor emissions from wastewater treatment plants in urban areas were made.

Index Terms—Wastewater treatment plant, greenhouse gas, odors.
