Methane Production and Removal in a Denitrifying Streambed
Division:Sciences de la santé
Ville:New Hamburg, ON
École:Cameron Heights C.I.
Sommaire:Denitrifying bioreactors are efficient methods of removing surface water nitrate in agricultural areas. Possible side effects include greenhouse gas production. This study demonstrates a method for limiting methane emissions (up to 73%) from a stream-bed bioreactor. Additional research is required to optimize reactor design and determine the microbial processes occurring. Increasing usage of bioreactors requires technologies to minimize greenhouse gas emissions.
