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.

How much is sludge worth?

The UK regulator OFWAT has introduced legislation based on the notion of sludge as a resource. Its value is often expressed in terms of calorific content, and the phosphate is also potentially recoverable. But how exactly should sludge value be quantified?
