Thermal destruction - non-oxidative

Non-oxidative thermochemical treatment of sewage sludge refers to treatment at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen. Methods include hydrothermal processes (HTPs), pyrolysis, and gasification, where gasification is based on partial oxidation of the organic carbon. Whereas pyrolysis and gasification require a substantially dry sludge product, HTPs are effective for sludges having a significant water content.

Anaerobic digestion optimization through thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment

Pre-treatment of sludge by thermal hydrolysis upstream of anaerobic digestion is used to improve AD efficiency. A study looked at (pre-)commissioning data for a full-scale AD installation undergoing upgrading with TH to assess the basis for optimisation.
