Project Description

By dewatering sludge, wastes can be efficiently and reliably concentrated into filter cakes with high solids for cost-effective disposal. Better understanding of the relationship between non-degradable organic matter and sludge rheology and dewaterability can lead to Optimization of dewatering which can significantly reduce the cost of wastewater treatment by minimizing the cost of sludge management, transportation, and final disposal.

PhD Thesis underway by Ali Tabatabaei.
