Electrical Power from Wastewater Sludge
The U.S. generates 8 million dry metric tons of sludge each year. The costs of disposing this sludge are roughly $2 billion dollars annually and the EPA spends about 1/5th of their budget ($1.4 billion dollars) on wastewater management. For individual wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), ‘dewatering’ the sludge is one of the primary operating co...
