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.

How do you solve a problem like PFAS?

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are generated from the breakdown of fluorinated polymers. The activation barrier for their breakdown is huge and the only fully commercialised processes possibly capable of destroying PFAS are thermochemical ones.
