Exergy steam sludge dryer

Thanks to the Exergy Superheated Steam Dryer the sludge from effluent treatment plants becomes a renewable energy source or fertilizer.

The steam dried sludge is 100% sterilized, free of odor and possible to store indefinitely.
Therefore creating a source of revenue instead of a cost.

ExergyPSSD® sludge dryer also gives the waste water treatment plant the flexibility to shift
sludge disposal route and create value from waste.

Sludge Dryer

Our sludge dryer can provide for a renewable energy resource or a high quality fertilizer.

Municipal and industrial wastewater treatment processes generate large amounts of sludge. Sludge is a solid, semisolid, or slurry residual material that from the different processes. There are different types of sludge. High quality sludge without contaminants, for example, contains valuable nutrients like phosphorus and humus.

The waste produced can, because of the nutrients, be a valuable source of energy or used as a fertilizer instead of being just disposed of as landfill.
Land-filling is a costly process, hazardous for the environment and increasingly banned in many countries and therefore unwanted.

Sludge disposal

The sludge produced in a wastewater treatment process must be treated and disposed of in a safe and effective manner and can be done by many different methods. But sludge contains up to 80% water and is often transported long distances away from waste water treatment plants for disposal.

By removing the water through an efficient drying process, the sludge weight is significantly decreased and the cost for transportation and disposal is reduced up to 4 times. In addition, the value of the sludge increases for both energy and agricultural use.
