Sludge Thickening - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Thickening reduces the volume of sludge by removing significant amount of water. For example, sludge originally at 1% solids, if thickened to 5% solids, has been reduced in volume by approximately 80%. This increases the SRT in a subsequent digester by a factor of 5 relative to digestion without thickening …

Sewage sludge treatment - Wikipedia

Anaerobic digestion is a bacterial process that is carried out in the absence of oxygen. The process can either be thermophilic digestion, in which sludge is fermented in tanks at a temperature of 55 °C, or mesophilic, at a temperature of around 36 °C.Though allowing shorter retention time (and thus smaller tanks), thermophilic digestion is more expensive in terms of energy consumption for ...
