Pyrofluid™ is a thermal treatment solution allowing for sewage sludge removal.
It implements a fluidized-bed incinerator. The flue gas operates at 850°C within a matter of seconds ensuring full combustion of the sludge.
- Urban and industrial sludge removal within plants of variable capacities;
- Heat production;
- Recoverable ashes production;
- Compliance with the strictest standards

** Industrial sludge
The sludge incineration flue gas is used for air heating combustion and to produce heat as warm water or steam.
Depending on physical-chemical characteristics, produced ashes by the Pyrofluid™ incinerator can be:
- Recycled for use within road construction (such as substratum road);
- Incorporated in special concrete (for example, auto performance concrete);
- Discharged to a landfill.
The treatment applied to the flue gas of the Pyrofluid™ incinerator integrates dust extraction and acid gas removal using a dry or wet method. It complies with the most rigorous European regulations on sludge incineration. The flue gas sewage residuals (REFIB) are disposed of in landfill centers (approximately 1% of the incinerated sludge tonnage).
