Dewatering, hygenization of sludge and retention of phosphorous

The project is a pilot project that aims to develop the potential to simplify the sludge management of sewage treatment plants by hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) that will be studied in lab scale. That can reduce the costs for centrifugation and flocculants for sewage treatment plants. The study will also examine the potential to recover phosphorus by leaching HTC-carbon acid as well as treat the economic potential and the environmental benefits of the solution in relation to existing solutions on a small sewage treatment plant.
