A comprehensive guide to sludge management, reuse, anddisposal

When wastewater is treated, reducing organic material to carbondioxide, water, and bacterial cells—the cells are disposed of,producing a semisolid and nutrient-rich byproduct called sludge.The expansion in global population and industrial activity hasturned the production of excess sludge into an internationalenvironmental challenge, with the ultimate disposal of excesssludge now one of the most expensive problems faced by wastewaterfacilities.

Written by two leading environmental engineers, BiologicalSludge Minimization and Biomaterials/Bioenergy RecoveryTechnologies offers a comprehensive look at cutting-edgetechniques for reducing sludge production, converting sludge into avalue-added material, recovering useful resources from sludge, andsludge incineration. Reflecting the impact of new stringentenvironmental legislation, this book offers a frank appraisal ofhow sludge can be realistically managed, covering key concerns andthe latest tools:

  • Fundamentals of biological processes for wastewater treatment,wastewater microbiology, and microbial metabolism, essential tounderstanding how sludge is produced
  • Prediction of primary sludge and waste-activated sludgeproduction, among the chief design and operational challenges of awastewater treatment plant
  • Technologies for sludge reduction, with a focus on reducingmicrobial growth yield as well as enhancing sludgedisintegration
  • The use of anerobic digestion of sewage sludge for biogasrecovery, in terms of process fundamentals, design, andoperation
  • The use of the microbial fuel cell (MFC) system for thesustainable treatment of organic wastes and electrical energyrecovery
