  • An economic evaluation of indirect sludge drying

    OSTI.GOV Journal Article: An economic evaluation of indirect sludge drying prior to incineration processes Title: An economic evaluation of indirect sludge drying prior

  • Energetic, environmental and economic analysis of

    Sep 15, 2020 Drying of sewage sludge is an energy intensive process in wastewater treatment applications. The dried sewage sludge could be utilized for energy production and as fertilizer. In this work, a drying chamber with transparent cover has been developed and numerically and experimentally tested in drying sewage sludge

  • An Economic Evaluation of Indirect Sludge

    ABSTRACT: An economic evaluation of the partial drying of sewage sludge prior to sludge incineration was made for four different systems incorporating indirect sludge dryers. Two of these designs used mechanical vapor recompressors to heat the dryers. The results indicated that the costs of sludge incineration with partial drying generally are lower than


    secondary sewage sludge are pumped to thickening facilities, mainly gravity thickeners. The thickened sludge is pumped to dewatering facilities mainly natural drying beds to increase its dry solids concentration to 40-60 % DS. After that the dewatered sludge is stored for a period of 1.5 to 6 months before using in agriculture

  • An Economic Evaluation of Indirect Sludge Drying Prior

    economic feasibility of indirect sludge drying. System designs for sewage sludge drying and incineration were developed to provide comparison with conventional sludge incineration sys tems. These systems are similar to the sludge drying and incin eration systems currently used at several European municipal and industrial wastewater treatment

  • From municipal/industrial wastewater sludge and FOG to

    The processes of drying sludge, where heat and electricity are used, are energy consuming and economically unattractive. Beside energy efficiency, the main problem of sludge drying is in its variability of quality as a raw material. In addition to this, sludge can be contaminated by a number of organic and inorganic pollutants and organisms

  • Consumption in the Drying Process

    Valorization of digested sewage sludge generated in a medium-sized sewage treatment plant and the effect of valorization on energy consumption during sludge drying used for energy recovery are presented. Anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge

  • Greenhouses for drying and recovery of sewage sludge

    Jun 16, 2017 A technical-economic study of the various processes of drying sludge from the treatment plant allowed the suitability of the type of dryer and the objectives sought on the basis of all the parameters studied (energy source, implantation, tonnage , Solar / geothermal drying has proven to be the most appropriate, efficient and rustic solution in

  • Solar sludge drying | THERMO-SYSTEM – Let us take care

    Solar sludge drying excels in fulfilling key economic and environmental goals. Solar energy is used to extract water from sewage sludge – a simple and cheap process that not only reduces the sludge considerably in terms of volume but also saves truck mileage and C0 2 emissions.. Three processes are available: Sludge can be dried in batches using a semi-continuous
