Level 3: E37.0

Level 4: E37.0.0

“Centralized wastewater treatment” Treatment of wastewater in centralized systems (including collection and wastewater treatment plants), substituting treatment systems causing high GHG emissions (e.g. onsite sanitation, anaerobic lagoons).

Climate Change Mitigation

Metric and threshold:
Construction or extension of centralized wastewater systems including collection (sewer network) and treatment is eligible, provided that: • the new wastewater treatment substitutes more GHG emission intensive wastewater treatment systems (such as pit latrines, septic tanks, anaerobic lagoons etc.). No threshold applies.
