Bio-cage™ - low cost, no power or chemicals, sludge thickening solution

Sludge is inevitably produced as part of the wastewater treatment process. Most sites do not treat this sludge onsite, but instead transport it to a larger site for further processing. However, the majority of this sludge is water, which means that large volumes of water are being tankered around the country. This seminar will look at the options for sludge thickening, especially on smaller sites, to reduce costs and carbon.
