  • LIFE+ Lo2x Project - Case Study

    LIFE+ Lo2x Project - Case Study

    The European Commission’s LIFE+ programme has funded a project to install a sustainable technology for resource recovery from waste treatment – using hydrothermal oxidation (HTO) – at a wastewater treatment ...

  • Eco-innovation success project - Case Study

    Eco-innovation success project - Case Study

    SCFI was awarded funding under the EU’s Eco-innovation initiative to develop commercial opportunities for AquaCritox including the creation of a demonstrator unit which will help to position the technology at the forefront of the global waste ...

  • Making wet waste destruction a sustainable reality

    Making wet waste destruction a sustainable reality

    Irish environmental company SCFI was supported by the European Union’s Eco-Innovation initiative in a project to build a portable unit to demonstrate its innovative AquaCritox wet waste treatment technology. This White Paper describes the ...

  • Sustainable sludge handling for the 21st Century

    Sustainable sludge handling for the 21st Century

    Purification of municipal and industrial waste waters leads to the generation of a residue-called “excess sludge”. This material when mechanically dewatered is typically 75-90% water. The balance of the dewatered sludge consists of organic compounds ...

  • Phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge using the Aquacritox supercritical water oxidation process

    Phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge using the Aquacritox supercritical water oxidation process

    Abstract Every person produces approximately 1.2kg/annum of phosphorous. This is typically conveyed to a wastewater treatment plant. In the United Kingdom, the annual phosphorus load from human sources which is present in wastewater is therefore ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration – An update

    Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration – An update

    Environmentally benign waste disposal is becoming a more and more acute problem. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental ...

  • Treatment of sewage sludge using super critical water oxidation-an up date

    Treatment of sewage sludge using super critical water oxidation-an up date

    Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) is an innovative, economic and incredibly effective destruction method for organic wastewater and sludge and is a realistic alternative to conventional methods. From 1998 to 2007 extensive evaluations of the ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation of sewage sludge – state of the art

    Supercritical water oxidation of sewage sludge – state of the art

    Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) is an innovative and effective destruction method for organic wastewater and sludge. Several tests of the destruction of sewage sludge by SCWO have been done at two state of the art pilot plants. These units have ...
