Welsh wastewater project could cut greenhouse gas emissions


A new method for wastewater treatment that has the potential to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions is currently undergoing testing in Wales.

The initiative, known as ‘OXYHYWATER’, is a collaborative effort between the University of South Wales (USW) and Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water (DCWW), and has the potential to make substantial reductions in emissions.

Developed by the USW-based Sustainable Environment Research Centre (SERC), the technique uses pure oxygen, rather than air from the atmosphere, to treat the effluent.
