Abstract
Recent interest in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has driven the need to better quantify emissions from waste management systems. The objective of this study was to evaluate the Biosolids Emissions Assessment Model (BEAM), a tool that quantifies GHG emissions for various biosolids reuse processes. The evaluation included conducting a GHG analysis for seven different processes for a biosolids processing facility in Alberta, Canada. A modified ISO 14064-2 calculation procedure was used. Overall, the BEAM provided a means to quantify GHG emissions. However, the estimated GHG emissions for some practices may not be representative due to the lack of site-specific information. Therefore, further investigation of each option was recommended to better quantify these emissions, such as inclusion of certain sources and sinks, a comprehensive data management, and verification of estimated emissions.
