The treatment of wastewater generates a by-product, sewage sludge, the disposal of which poses problems. There are, however, a number of options for making use of this residue, including its conversion into a valuable fuel. The aim of this paper is to describe the process of the heating of sewage sludge under different atmospheres of helium and oxygen and to obtain the kinetic parameters by means of a mathematical model, a heating rate of 10 ◦C/min being used. Measurements were taken by… CONTINUE READING
