  • Supercritical water oxidation of sewage sludge

    ABSTRACT 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 capacities of 250 kg/h and 1100 kg/h, respectively. The test results show that the technology easily destroys the organic ...

  • Treatment of Different Wastes by Supercritical Water Oxidation

    Abstract If left to conventional treatment processes, the destruction of toxic organic wastewaters and associated sludge volume reduction clearly becomes an overwhelming problem. Two options, incineration and supercritical water oxidation (SCWO), exist for the complete destruction of toxic wastewaters and organic sludges. Incineration has associated problems such as very high cost and ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration

    Finding environmentally benign waste disposal options is becoming more critical. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental characteristics (none of the emissions associated with incineration). The process is especially suitable for the treatment of wastewater and sludges ...

  • Recovery of Precious Metal Catalysts with Supercritical Water Oxidation

    Incineration is the traditional method used to recover precious metals from spent catalysts, but it has a number of drawbacks, particularly from an environmental point of view. Now a British-Swedish joint venture, involving Chematur Engineering AB and Johnson Matthey, has developed a process that uses supercritical water oxidation to recover the precious metals. The technology, called ...

  • Supercritical CO2 boosts super optimism in sequestering greenhouse gas

    Scientists appear to have the rock-solid evidence that suggests carbon dioxide can be safely and permanently sequestered in deep, underground basalt rock formations, without risk of it eventually escaping to the atmosphere. The findings have potential implications for sequestering carbon in other reservoir systems as well. Researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National ...

  • ReportsnReports - Water Technology Markets

    The water sector is facing greater challenges than ever before: population growth, climate change, increased water scarcity, tougher environmental regulation, and dwindling public finances. As we confront these issues, only one thing stands between success and failure: water technology. It is a subject which has been neglected over the years. The pipe, the pump and the valve, have been enough to ...

  • Billions to be gained from sewers

    Although wastewater sewage sludge is usually considered an expensive nuisance to be disposed of, it can actually be a source of energy, phosphorus and other products. Water treatment facilities are currently exploring technologies to extract this value. Research shows that the potential of recovery grows from USD25 billion today to USD45 billion in 2020. The treatment and handling of sludge can ...
