Sludge is a great problem for wastewater treatment plants. This problem grows every day since the amount of sludge increases continuously and the land required for the storage of the sludge.
Santes combines the advantages of drying and incineration and uses the energy of the incinerated sludge in drying to minimize the energy consumptions in sludge handling. This system decreases the total volume of the sludge to about 5% of its original volume with the name of Sludge Fuelisation System. Within this system, Sludge first fed to the drying unit and dried sludge is directed to the incineration unit. With the incineration of dried sludge necessary energy for the drying process is provided.
