The open access article for the August 2016 edition of Water Environment Research (WER) examines the ability of current protocols for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in wastewater conveyance and treatment systems to remain in sync with developing GHG research.
“In a state-of-the-art review paper, Willis, et al., address the short-comings of current GHG emissions protocols in keeping pace with current research trends regarding wastewater conveyance and treatment systems, said WER editor-in-chief Tim Ellis. “The review provides an overview of wastewater collection and treatment activities, the possible GHG emissions encountered, and how they are treated by the available GHG estimation protocols.”
Selected WER articles such as this one are available free to the public on a monthly basis through an open-access program. Click here to download, “Wastewater GHG Accounting Protocols as Compared to the State of GHG Science,” by John L. Willis, Zhiguo Yuan, and Sudhir Murthy.
Published by the Water Environment Federation since 1928, WER is a popular professional journal that features peer-reviewed research papers and research notes, as well as state-of-the-art and critical reviews on original, fundamental, and applied research in all scientific and technical areas related to water quality, pollution control, and management.
Originally known as the Sewage Works Journal, WER is available in both print and online formats and receives approximately 400 new research submissions each year.
