Aerobic composting has gained considerable attention because of its ability to remove organic micro-pollutants. Compost process temperature is a key parameter controlling degradation rate. Impact of process temperature on removal of 15 key organic micro-pollutants often found in sewage sludge (including two metabolites) during sewage sludge composting was investigated at 18-70°C over 52 days. Removal rates generally depended strongly on temperature and for all compounds an optimal temperature… CONTINUE READING
