This study is a first attempt to estimate global and country-specific methane (CH4) emissions from open sewers and on-site wastewater treatment systems, including latrines and septic sewage tanks. This study uses an emission factor that expresses CH4 emissions in terms of removed Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD(removed)). An appendix to this report includes a discussion of nitrogen cycle effects in these systems to qualify ammonia (NH3) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from these systems. It was concluded that these systems are not likely to contribute and significant quantity of NH3 and N2O to the atmosphere.
