Sludge and biosolids management is our job !Managing the increasing sludge volumes generated by municipal and industrial water and wastewater treatment processes is a major environmental challenge worldwide.
At Veolia Water Technologies, we see sludge not as a waste but as a potentially valuable resource. We apply our global technological leadership in sewage treatment to help our clients extract valuable biosolids and produce agriculturally-beneficial byproducts. By implementing biosolids management we help municipalities to convert sludge into energy and offset wastewater treatment plant operation costs.
Our designs minimize sludge generation in the initial phases of water and sewage treatment. For sludge that remains after recovery, we minimize weight and volume and remove harmful substances prior to disposal. Our sustainable water and sewage treatment solutions meet rigorous health and environmental standards.
- Exelys and Biothelys, our thermal hydrolysis solutions
- Anita Range for sidestream treatment of high-ammonia loaded effluents
- Biocon and Biocon ERS, low-temperature thermal drying
- Solia greenhouse solar sludge dryer
- Pyrofluid, sludge incineration, energy recovery and ash recycling
- Athos, hydrothermal oxidation for sludge reduction
Cities that have looked to Veolia for advanced sludge treatment options include Paris (France), Hong Kong and Qingdao (China), Saint Petersburg (Russia), Krakow (Poland), Brussels (Belgium) and Buffalo (New York).
Our innovative Exelys™ technology represents the next generation of biosolids thermal hydrolysis. By concentrating the matter to be treated, the volume to be heated is reduced yielding:
