Gravity belt thickeners

Gravity belt thickening (GBT) thickens sludge by allowing the water (or filtrate) to drain from the sludge under gravity through a permeable medium (a recirculating conveyor belt) on which the sludge sits. The sludge solids concentration is increased along the length of a porous belt as water drains through it, the sludge solids forming a layer on the belt surface.

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.
