Greenhouse Gases (GHG) Fugitive Emissions

GHG Monitoring

The principal supplier of water, wastewater & drainage servicing to over 2 million people throughout Australia, awarded AquaGas Pty Ltd for the supply of 2 SmartCEMS GHG for their wastewater treatment facilities.

Broadly, wastewater systems contribute to GHG emissions not only through their significant consumption of grid electricity in most cases, but also through direct emissions of nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4). These are often called ‘fugitive’ gases because they escape from the collection and treatment systems.

For this project AquaGas scope includes the provision, installation, and commissioning of 2 stand alone monitoring systems designed to monitor continuously and simultaneously N2O, CH4, CO2 and O2. Equipped with multistream sampling system, these analysers are used to check multiple sources across a wide range of locations in the client’s production facilities.

AquaGas online analysers are suited to a large range of applications related to Greenhouse Gas fugitive emissions such as emissions and process monitoring at

  • WTP Ponds (with sampling hood)
  • OCS odour control systems (inlet & discharge)
  • Biogas plants (digesters, engine feed, engine emissions…)
  • And Landfills (fenceline, landfill gas…)

When used to their full extent, the expanded capabilities offered by accurate and reliable analysers can bring real benefits by providing fast access to detailed GHG emissions data and an accurate real time overview of operating conditions at urban utilities and industrial sites.
