Greenhouse Gas Study
Global warming is already the main environmental challenge facing humanity. The consequences derived from the continuity in the emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) are of planetary dimensions and involve a high environmental and economic cost. It becomes therefore essential to regulate and control anthropogenic emissions of this type of gas.
Our measurement system
In addition to carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) constitute two of the most important gases in the generation of global warming. These types of gases are usually emitted in the fermentation of organic matter under anoxic conditions, as well as in the nitrogen cycle, in the nitrification and denitrification processes. The wastewater treatment sector, as well as the waste treatment and recovery sector, are characterized by the emission of these gases.
At SUEZ we offer our clients the measurement of two of the most important gases that cause the greenhouse effect, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), using the most innovative technology.
We also carry out Greenhouse Gas Inventories (GHG), Carbon Footprint, Benchmarking and Good Practices for industries and public administrations regarding their impact on the climate.
In the same way, we calculate the Ecological Footprint (Mathis Wackernagel and William Rees, 1996), which expresses the area necessary for a certain population to be able to maintain its living conditions indefinitely without the need of any material and / or energy flow with outdoor.
