Incineration

Incineration − or combustion − of sewage sludge is the most widely-implemented alternative end disposal method after land spreading. It oxidatively converts the organic carbon, nitrogen, sulphur, nitrogen and phosphorus into gaseous and predominantly mineral solid products. It is effective in eliminating the feed organics, produces little odour, and generates a stable solid ash product which is stable and reusable. The heat generated can be recovered from the flue gas stream and reused directly and/or converted to electrical power.

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.
