Modeling Total Air Emissions at Large Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant
Large municipal wastewater treatment plants in EU are obligated to report their water and air emissions since year 2007. The obligation is based on EC regulation No. 166/2006, which regulates all major urban wastewater treatment plants above 100 000 PE to report their water and air emissions by PRTR protocol. Individual air emission measurement is demanding to implement, since major part of the large treatment plants are uncovered. Viikinmäki WWTP has had the leading role what comes to the PRTR reporting of air emissions in Finland. This study shows how the air emissions of Viikinmäki (780 000 PE) has been determined and reported to fulfil the PRTR protocol demands. Due to fact that the Viikinmäki WWTP is completely covered, underground treatment plant, ventilation air analyses were possible to implement in full scale and air emissions could be calculated. Additionally the results can be used by other large WWTPs.
