Brick Manufacturing From Water Treatment Sludge And Rice Husk Ash

  title={Brick Manufacturing From Water Treatment Sludge And Rice Husk Ash},
  author={Badr El-Din and E. Hegazy and H. Fouad and Ahmed M. Hassanain},
For thousands of years, bricks have been made from clay. The water treatment plant sludge is extremely close to brick clay in chemical composition. So, the sludge could be a potential substitute for brick clay. The water treatment process generates a sludge that must be disposed of in an environmentally sound manner. The sludge generated in most of the treatment systems around the world is discharged into the nearest watercourse, which leads to accumulative rise of aluminum concentrations in…

Handling the Sludge When Using Polyaluminum Chloride as a Coagulant in the Potable Water Treatment Process
The sludge produced in the treatment process depends on the type of coagulant and other chemicals used and the suspended particles present in raw water. Discarding this sludge in the landfills poses
One of the global problems that is associated with production of potable water is alum sludge when aluminum sulfate (Al2SO4 .18H2O) is used as a coagulant. The quantities of over 2.0 million tons of
