Emerging Technologies for Biosolids Management
In Emerging Technologies for Biosolids Management , you'll learn ...
- The difference between established, embryonic and innovative technologies for biosolids management
- Innovative technologies covering conditioning, thickening, stabilization, dewatering, thermal conversion and drying
- Solutions that address reduction of solids and odor reduction
- Technologies that can potentially provide non-agriculture benefial uses
- Capital cost and operating cost considerations
Biosolids (sewage sludge) are the nutrient-rich organic materials resulting from treatment and processing of wastewater residuals. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that publicly owned wastewater treatment works (POTW) generate over 8 million tons (dry weight) of sewage sludge annually. New sewage sludge regulations reduces options for disposal and rising energy costs are causing a new wave of technologies to be introduced into this market. New equipment is being developed and tested at a record pace. Wastewater treatment plants and engineers are involved with evaluating the latest and best technologies for this changing industry.
This course provides information on new technologies entering the market, including technologies for conditioning, thickening, stabilizing, dewatering, thermal conversion and drying of biosolids.
The course is suitable for a student with basic wastewater treatment knowledge or for an advanced student that needs to evaluate new and emerging alternative biosolids management technologies.
