Webinar: Reducing wastewater N2O emissions with Advanced Process Control (APC)

Learn all about our 12 years of research into N2O emissions. Join our webinar on 28 March 2023 to discover how to optimise and reduce N₂O emissions in wastewater treatment plants by using our virtual operator. Webinar on 28 March 2023, 14:30-15:30 CEST.
a wastewater treatment plant with the goal of reducing N2O emissions

When: 28 March 2023

Time: 14:30-15:30 CEST

Type: Virtual event


Wastewater utilities need to be carbon neutral by 2050. Nitrous oxide (N2O), laughing gas, is now a more pronounced part of the carbon footprint of wastewater treatment works (WwTW).  Twinn’s Aquasuite AI software uses predictive control and real-time monitoring to optimise and reduce these emissions. Discover during our 28 March webinar how to reduce N2O emissions by using our virtual operator.  

Although the carbon emissions from electricity decrease as more electricity is produced from renewable sources, the emissions of nitrous oxide and methane make up a larger part of the carbon footprint. And since nitrous oxide is 265 times more potent than carbon CO2 for warming the atmosphere and causing climate change, the need to reduce these emissions is bigger than ever.

Learn from more than 12 years of research

Discover how the virtual operator can augment your operations team and help secure a constant, uninterrupted treatment of wastewater. For the last 25 years, Royal HaskoningDHV has utilized its Twinn’s Aquasuite software, equipped with Advanced Process Control (APC) modules, to better understand and control the processes of drinking water supply  and wastewater treatment. Royal HaskoningDHV has also been involved in researching the degree of nitrous oxide emissions from wastewater treatment plants (WwTP) in the Netherlands. The results of these studies provide water authorities with tools to determine the emission of N2O. This knowledge is shared in a Community of Practice (CoP) Nitrous oxide in which almost all water authorities are now participating.

During our webinar we will take you along in:

1. Learning of more than 12 years of research and pilots
2. How to easily start with the first steps in reducing N₂O emissions today
3. A case where, during higher load, 33% less N2O was observed on the aeration lane where Advanced Process Control was applied
