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

    Sewage sludge is a potential source of energy. A kilogram of dried sewage sludge contains approximately 20,000 BTU’s of energy. The challenge with releasing this energy is that sewage sludge, when collected from the bottom of a clarifier is 99% water. In order to release the energy present through gasification, pyrolysis or incineration, the water must be removed before oxidation in air can ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
