  • Thermal hydrolysis, anaerobic digestion and dewatering of sewage sludge as a best first step in sludge strategy: full scale examples in large projects in the UK and strategic study including cost and carbon footprint.

    Abstract This paper shows that by using thermal hydrolysis process (THP) as a pre-treatment for anaerobic digestion (AD) it is possible to develop a step wise approach to sludge strategy that is cost effective and flexible. By generating a low volume of non odorous, well dewatered and safe digested cake it is possible to recycle sludge directly to agriculture or dry it for fuel use or ...
