Article
Sewers are known as longitudinal reactors where gases such as methane, nitrous oxide and hydrogen sulphide can be produced. However, gaseous emissions have been mainly assessed in wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). This article presents a critical review of studies that quantify the generation of these gases in sewers and to identify the existing...
Conference Paper
Direct gas emissions from wastewater collection and treatment systems have become a topic of increasing interest, given their contribution to the urban carbon footprint, as well as, to the problems associated to odours. Most studies have focused on wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), disregarding the significant role of sewer networks in the produ...

Managing sanitation infrastructures is of paramount importance in order to meet the demand of an increasing urban population. From a life-cycle perspective, the operation stage of the wastewater collection and treatment results in 2 different types of contributions to the Global Warming Potential (GWP). On the one hand, the indirect impacts consist...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A sewer network can be considered as a biological reactor where each constructive element can lead to different environmental conditions. Depending on these conditions, several biological reactions could take place resulting in gas formation, such as nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S). Problems like corrosion and odour a...
