  • Wastewater Sludge: Second Edition

    Following a successful first edition published in 2007, the follow-up 2011 edition of Wastewater Sludge - A Global Overview of the Current Status and Future Prospects will present an updated and expanded perspective on developments in relation to wastewater sludge around the world. Sludge arising from wastewater treatment represents a serious ...

  • Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of Sludge

    The adoption of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive requires sewage sludge to be subsequently treated and the Sewage Sludge Directive regulates the uses and properties of stabilised sludge for being either recycled or disposed. Both directives drive specific actions in two complementary ways. Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of ...

  • Evaluation of Processes to Reduce Activated Sludge Solids Generation and Disposal

    This project will deal with a number of aspects of WAS-only-reduction technologies for both industrial and municipal wastewater treatment applications. The objectives of this project include the following: Developing an evaluation methodology that can be used to independently assess the effectiveness of WAS-reduction technologies Demonstrating the ...

  • Fate of Estrogenic Compounds during Municipal Sludge Stabilization and Dewatering

    This project convened a team of experts in the fields of environmental engineering (AECOM), analytical chemistry and hydrogeology (USGS), and biological assay analysis (UA) to evaluate the occurrence and fate of estrogenic compound, and the estrogenicity of biosolids derived from wastewater treatment. Sludge and biosolids samples were collected ...

  • Effect of Aluminum and Iron on Odors, Digestion Efficiency, and Dewatering Properties

    This study was designed to be a follow up of the WERF III (Adams, et al., 2007) odor study. It was found in the WERF III study that iron and aluminum appeared to play important roles in odor generation so some additional data was sought to determine the role these play in determining odor. In this portion of the study, the impact of iron and ...
