Water scarcity is on the rise, and it could grow worse in the near future, therefore wastewater treatment has become a requirement for survival. Procedures like sludge dewatering have become widespread practise in almost all countries throughout the world as humans are considered accountable for contaminating the water supply and putting future generations' lives at danger.
What is Sludge dewatering?
The method of dewatering sludge involves eliminating excess water from the sludge.
Sludge is a result of the extraction of slurry during the wastewater treatment process. Dewatering sludge is commonly done to make disposal easier. Sludge can be dewatered using a variety of methods, including the belt press, centrifuge/decanter, and filter press. Sludges, according to studies, contain a lot of water, making them heavier and more expensive to dispose of.
Sludges from industry and municipalities are separated into liquid and solid components during wastewater treatment. The liquid or treated water can be reused in the manufacturing process. The sludges should either be appropriately disposed of or converted into a dry powder with the help of a biodigester.Strict rules govern the proper disposal of sludges all around the world.
What are the advantages of dewatering sludge?
• Volume and cost savings
The major goal of sludge disposal is to reduce the volume of the waste so that it can be easily disposed of. Sludge dewatering can significantly reduce the volume of sludge, lowering disposal costs.
• Recycling of waste water
Other than drinking, the water generated after the dewatering process can be used for a variety of reasons. It brings you one step closer to ensuring that the water supply is preserved for future generations.
The wastewater treatment and sludge dewatering processes are both environmentally benign. All risks and contaminants have been eliminated from the water, making it safe to use again. Sludge, on the other hand, functions as a soil conditioner, making the soil more fruitful.
Sludges can be dewatered in a variety of methods. The volume of sludges can be reduced by 70 to 80 percent using a biodigester, allowing it to be transformed into a dry powder that can be used to increase soil fertility. Netsol's Sludge Dewatering Units (SDU) with biodigester are ideal for effective wastewater treatment.
