Proposal number EXAW-1999-01211

AcronymSFH

Proposal titleSLUDGE FOR HEAT

AbstractThe aim of the project is to develop and demonstrate an innovative technology foran

environmentally acceptable system to dispose of sewage sludge produced atmunicipal waste

water treatment plants, particularly those serving medium to largetowns - 10, 000-60,

000 inhagitants.  Current incineration technology is too costlyat the size necessary for the

throughput from towns of such size.  This situationis found throughout the EU but is

particularly true in countries of central andeastern Europe where the large number and

geographical distribution of medium tolarge towns means that collection and centralised

disposal methods necessary forcentralised incineration are prohibitively expensive.  The

project will include asurvey of the arisings of sewage sludge to determine the likely market.

Small-scale fluidised bed combustion as proposed in this project can provide acost

effective solution for the disposal of sewage sludge at this scale, make useof the calorific

content of the sludge by providing useful energy for local heating purposes, increasing the

economic viability of installations and reducingthe combustion of fossil fuels.
