|Proposed Methodology No.||ID_PM034|
|Sectoral scope||3. Energy demand|
|Title||Replacement of diffuser with aerator in aeration pond|
GHG emission reduction measures : For aerobic wastewater treatment, aeration device(s) is(are) used for supplying air into wastewater. Replacement of the diffuser with the aerator enables to reduce air discharge pressure at blower(s), to run blower(s) not continuously but intermittently and to reduce discharge amounts of air from blower(s). By these effects, electricity consumption at blower(s) can be reduced.
Calculation of project emissions : Project emissions are calculated with electricity consumption of project blower(s) and CO2 emission factor for consumed electricity.
Calculation of reference emissions : Reference emissions are calculated with electricity consumption of blower(s) connected with project aeration devices of aerator (hereinafter referred to as “project blower(s)”), ratio of operating time of blower(s) connected with reference aeration devices of diffuser (hereinafter referred to as “reference blower(s)”) and project blower(s), ratio of shaft power of reference/project blower(s), and CO2 emission factor for consumed electricity.
Monitoring parameters : Electricity consumption at project blower(s); Operating time of project blower(s); Stop time of project blower(s) during intermittent operation); Discharge pressure of project blower(s); Rotations per minute of project blower(s).
