How to dry sludge?

the sludge drying can take place by simple evaporation, by placing the sludge in containers in the open air, sludge drying can be done by a settling technique, or by systems of drying thermal.

What happens to sewage sludge from wastewater treatment systems?

composting (also 30% of sludge in France): the sludge can be mixed with green waste and then degraded by bacteria, fungi, etc. in the presence of oxygen (like in the garden composter!); anaerobic digestion: this is a degradation of sludge by bacteria in the absence of oxygen.

How to deal with sludge generated in wastewater treatment processes?

The treatment of sludge generated in wastewater treatment processes is governed by specific legislation, which allows, once treated as it should, to use it in the agricultural sector as fertilizers. Thus, the quality of the sludge varies according to the composition of the starting wastewater.

What are the sludge stabilization treatments?

This consists of reducing the fermentable character sludge and thus, in particular, to eliminate bad odors. Stabilization treatments sludge apply to sludge mixed fresh or only with sludge secondary treatment of the wastewater. They are biological, chemical or thermal in nature.

How to get rid of a slime?

The most frequent methods are: It results in the coagulation of solids and the release of absorbed water, it is used before the drying process. The chemicals used are: The first 3 allow disinfection and stabilization of the mud.

How does the sludge concentration take place?

Another concentration technique: flotation, based on the injection of gas into the sludge, which separates the liquid and solid phases by difference in density. At the outlet, the sludge is still liquid with a dryness of 4 to 6%. Dewatering reduces the water content of sludge,…
