Sludge reduction occurs by dewatering (draining, evapotranspiration) and mineralization. Sludge from wastewater treatment plants (2,500-125,000 PE) is treated in sludge reed basin systems with 1-18 basins with loading rates of 25-2,200 tons dry matter/year for 10 years. In general, the sludge type is surplus activated sludge or a mix of mesophile digested sludge and surplus activated sludge. Dimensioning and design of reed basin systems for 10-year periods of operation depends on how the sludge… CONTINUE READING
