"Unisense Environment A/S receives the environmental award for developing the sensor system “N2O Wastewater System” for measuring nitrous oxide emissions from wastewater treatment plants. The sensor can be used for control of wastewater treatment plants whereby emissions of nitrous oxide are minimized.
Data from the sensor can be used continuously to optimize wastewater processes in the process tanks and thereby minimize emissions. Because nitrous oxide is a very potent climate gas, the sensor can contribute to reduce the climate impact from wastewater treatment plants."
