This course focuses on the monitoring and quantification of off-gas and greenhouse gas emissions from WWTPs using standardized experimental approaches. The course is designed for both academics and practitioners, including graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, laboratory staff, plant operators, consultants, and other sector professionals with a background in sanitary, civil, environmental or (bio)chemical engineering, environmental biotechnology or biochemistry. As the course is at graduate level, participants with knowledge of and experience with the basic concepts of biological wastewater treatment will particularly benefit from it.
The following topics are part of the course:
- Selecting the sampling strategy;
- Plant assessment and data collection;
- Emission measurements;
- N2O measurement in open tanks;
- Measurement of off-gas flow in open tanks;
- Aqueous N2O and CH4 concentration determination;
- Data analysis and processing

Learning objectives, activities and assessment depend on the delivery mode of the course. In general, learning objectives are more complex for instructor-led courses. This is particularly true for on campus courses and tailored training because they allow for guided, hands on, laboratory exercises and assignments.
