The specific objectives of the project are embodied in 6 interlinked work packages (See Figure 1):

  • WP1. Develop and implement a whole-plant quantification tool to measure and estimate GHG emissions

  • WP2. Quantify N2O production and emission at reactor-scale from conventional and innovative mainstream and side-stream N removal technologies.

  • WP3. Identify and quantify biological mechanisms of N2O production and consumption

  • WP4. Build and validate mechanistic process models for N2O dynamics

  • WP5. Integrate process models in plant wide models, and develop and benchmark operation/control scenarios to mitigate GHG emission.

  • WP6. Verify inferred N2O mitigation scenarios by experimental testing at full-scale.
