  • Converting wet organic waste, black bag waste, as well as MRF residuals into solid recovered fuel (SRF) is now possible

    With China closing its doors to lower-grade recyclables, and with composting programs continuing to underperform, keeping this material out of landfill is becoming an increasing challenge. The largest problem has always been moisture content. What if you could turn all this waste (except for metals and inerts) into high-quality SRF without having to separate it, and without the need for ...

  • Moisture measurement with M-Sens 2 Sensor selection with Easy-Tester - Case Study

    Application During the process of cement production cement powder is burnt to clinker. This process takes place in a kiln. For the operation of this kiln different combustibles are used, amongst others sewage sludge. The heating value of sewage sludge depends on its degree of dryness. Sewage sludge normally has a high moisture content when it is delivered to cement plants, therefore it ...

  • Nitrogen Recovery from Sewage Sludge - Case Study

    Ammonium Sulphate from process air The air with which the compost from sludge processor GMB BioEnergie is aerated in the biological drying tunnels contains a lot of ammonia. The emission of this ammonia-rich air led to odor complaints in the past. Now we see this air as a source of nutrients. We pass the air through an air scrubber with sulfuric acid. This sulfuric acid binds the ammoniacal ...

  • Continuous Pyrolysis Facility for Sewage Sludge Treatment

    The amount of sewage sludge is catastrophically increased in the latest few decades due to functioning of the municipal sewage treatment facilities. Dry sewage sludge contains 70-90% of the organic substances and 10-30% of the inorganic substances, which are dangerous for human health in case of inappropriate utilization. The continuous pyrolysis technology presents the unique sewage sludge ...

  • Phyto-dewatering of sewage sludge using Panicum repens L.

    Experiments in the field environment have been conducted to study the growth of Panicum repens L., an aquatic plant, in the sewage sludge matrix. The experiments were also carried out to investigate the ability of this plant to dewater sewage sludge to increase the capacity of conventional drying beds. In addition, the ability of Panicum repens L. to reduce the sludge ...

  • Investigation of the effects of temperature and sludge characteristics on odors and VOC emissions during the drying process of sewage sludge

    Sludge drying is a necessary step for sludge disposal. In this study, sludge was collected from two wastewater treatment plants, and dried at different temperatures in the laboratory. The emission of odor and total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) during the sludge drying process were determined by an online odor monitoring system. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in off-gas were analyzed ...

  • The thin-layer drying characteristics of sewage sludge by the appropriate foaming pretreatment

    As dewatered sludge is highly viscous and sticky, the combination of foaming pretreatment and drying process seems to be an alternative method to improve the drying performance of dewatered sludge. In this study, CaO addition followed by mechanical whipping was employed for foaming the dewatered sludge. It was found that the foams were stable and the diameters of bubbles mainly ranged from 0.1 ...
