Wastewater treatment is recognized as a significant source of greenhouse gases, CO2 and CH4, to the atmosphere. Elevated levels of CO2 in wastewater due to high organic matter loading can depress pH and reduce the efficiency of aerobic and anaerobic remineralization. High nutrient levels that promote algal blooms can also affect the efficiency of organic matter breakdown and wastewater treatment. Balancing the pH, reducing anaerobic decomposition and monitoring CO2 and CH4 emissions are all part of ensuring proper wastewater treatment and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Available for CO2, CH4, and TDGP, the Mini-Series of sensors are compact and light-weight, and provide long-term reliable dissolved gas measurements. Designed for use in water, oil, or water and oil mixtures, the Mini-Series will meet many of your gas measurement needs.
