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.

Co-processing of sewage digestate by hydrothermal carbonisation

Hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) can be used to co-process anaerobic digestion (AD) digestate and lignocellulosic (or plant-based) feedstocks to improve the the hydrochar product quality. This AD waste co-processing route has been studied at bench scale.
