Effect of duckweed cover on greenhouse gas emissions and odour release from waste stabilisation ponds



Effect of duckweed cover on greenhouse gas emissions and odour release from waste stabilisation ponds



Water Science and Technology 48(2): 341-348



Treatment of waste water in stabilization pond systems prevents the negative environmental impact of uncontrolled disposal of sewage. However, even a natural treatment system may generate secondary negative environmental impacts in terms of energy consumption, emission of greenhouse gases and emission of odorous compounds.
