How do you treat sludge properly? This question is of critical importance in modern wastewater treatment. On the one hand, disposal is very expensive. On the other hand, sewage sludge is a viable source of energy and nutrients. How energy-efficient or even energy self-sufficient a treatment plant actually is will depend largely on the quality of sludge digestion.
The ELIQUO HYDROK experience in sludge treatment is comprehensive. Sludge thickening, digestion, dewatering and drying are all part of our portfolio. With our proprietary, innovative design concepts, we provide advanced sludge treatment solutions. Our LYSOTHERM® system improves the gas yield and reduces the amount of residue for disposal.
The best-possible sludge digestion enables sewage treatment plants to operate with energy self-sufficiency and in some cases with an energy surplus. This is achievable in combination with co-substrate utilisation, with energy-related improvements in the mechanical and aerobic biological wastewater treatment or with the additional use of renewable energies, such as wind power and photovoltaics. We would be happy to work with you on a tailor-made system design.
