Emission measurements from biological treatment

SP Energy Technology performs emission measurements on releases to atmosphere from biogas plants, upgrading plants for vehicle gas, waste water treatment plants, composting plants, landfills etc.
Methane losses

At SP Energy Technology we have many years of experience in measuring and determining methane losses from biogas and upgrading plants within the framework for Swedish Waste Management's initiative, Voluntary Agreement. Measurements are also made on other types of plants such as waste water treatment plants, composting plants and landfills, where we are also working with research projects in order to develop and apply new measurement methods. We have equipment and methods for leak detection in process plants.



Together with SP Chemistry and Materials Technology, we are working to assess the efficiency of biofilters. We can analyse odorous substances using chemical analysis as a complement to olfactometric sampling.
