CONVERTING MUNICIPAL, FOOD, INDUSTRIAL AND AGRICULTURE SLUDGE INTO RE-USEABLE WATER AND ENERGY BIO-PELLETS
THE SLUDGE DILEMMA
It’s everywhere and it’s a growing problem……………
Sludge is a huge environmental nuisance and an economic burden. The costs of sludge disposal are exceedingly high, and have been rising steadily over the past several years. Despite representing only about 1% to 3% of total wastewater flows, sludge handling accounts for up to 50% of total treatment plant operating costs. In Asia, sludge disposal can cost between USD $250/ton to USD $1,500/ton depending on the industry and capacity.
Sludge is comprised of solid material that does not decompose, or decomposes slowly, and in addition contains live and dead bacteria. The particles that barely decompose are mainly cellulose, fats, oils and minerals. After the screening and dewatering process in existing WWTP systems, the sludge, referred to at this stage as dry sludge, still contains 80% water. So, every truckload of sludge that is headed to a disposal site or landfill is carrying 80% water and only 20% solids. In some cases sludge slurry at 99% water and 1% solids are also disposed off illegally.
Sludge treatment describes the processes used to manage and dispose of the solid or semi-solid product produced during municipal sewage treatment and industrial wastewater treatment.
The VIROFLUX-ALAR AUTOMATIC ROTARY VACUUM DRUM FILTER is a simple but revolutionary, energy-from-sludge technology that provides a consistently clean and efficient platform for managing sludge disposal and producing sustainably clean re-useable water along with environmentally green bio-solids.
We have had proven trials for a multitude of sludge(s) which have been analysed and specific standards have been established for their processing operations within the AUTOMATIC ROTARY VACUUM DRUM FILTER.
ADVANTAGES OF USING VIROFLUX-ALAR AUTOMATIC ROTARY VACUUM DRUM FILTER (RVDF)
Generates clean re-useable water and bio-solids from sludge.
Complete disposal of sludge with zero rejects or discharge, no noxious fumes and/or toxic emissions
Economically viable & scalable system capable of taking varying loads.
Decentralized system capable of working in remote topography & extreme climate conditions.
A stand alone, fully automated system operating with very high efficiency and consistency ie independent of scale.
Dispose most form of sludge (includes hazardous) in an environmentally friendly manner while meeting strict parameters.
Highly flexible plant capable of taking a wide range and type of loads while maximizing desired output.
