    Chief Technology Officer, Unisense Environment A/S

    Lead the development of the world’s only dissolved nitrous oxide sensor for wastewater monitoring leading to the spin-off company Unisense Environment. Working extensively with environmental monitoring and mitigation controllers for N2O incl. emission modelling, novel aeration, COD, and de-ammonification controls with real-time GHG monitoring.

    Title of presentation:
    Ubiquitous sensing of wastewater systems for mitigating climate impacts

    Abstract of presentation:
    Nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions present considerable challenges for water utilities’ paths to net zero. The N2O emissions and inferred CO2 footprints are highly variable and seasonal and emphasize the need for long-term continuous monitoring. Yet progressive utilities are showing ambition and progress in understanding and reducing their N2O emissions.

      Digital technologies play a big role on the Danish water sector’s strive to become energy- and climate neutral by 2030. Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs), also referred to as Wastewater Treatment plants (WWTPs) are key to this development, in addition to securing public health and environmental protection in modern society. WRRFs may become energy- and resource factories of the future, when fully embracing the digital transformation with higher levels of automation, process control and sector integration. Global sustainability benefits are realistic when upscaling worldwide, which holds promise for increased export of cutting edge environmental technology.
