Sewage Sludge Dehumidification Saves Money, Land Use and is Safe!
Energy recovery is becoming much more important for wastewater treatment…a waste disposal organization might now be considered a resource recovery organization.
Black & Veatch “2nd annual report for the Wastewater Industry” 2013
Treating Municipal Wastewater, Farm Wastewater Sludge and Industrial Wastewater.
Benefits of a sewage sludge dehumidification system:
- Weight of sewage sludge reduced by 417% with no odor
- Reducing energy costs ~ utilizes a closed cabinet dehumidification dryer and a very high efficiency heat pump system
- Modular and scalable onsite equipment ~ accommodates any size operation
- Treated sludge and biosolids meet the U.S. EPA regulations, the requirements for treating Class A sludge
- Financing available ~ no upfront cost
- A renewable and clean energy treatment
As a project developer we also specialize in sludge and wastewater cleanup through environmentally safe technology ~ working with industrial farms, other industries and municipalities. Our sewage sludge dehumidification system provides a safe and effective method for dehydrating sewage sludge and managing biosolids. As a team, we are committed to providing cost reducing and sustainable energy for sludge cleanup.
Treatment System ~ How it Works
The dehumidification heat pump used in the treatment equipment utilizes the refrigeration principal to cool and dehumidify hot wet air. Through the heat pump principal, the heat pump recycles the latent heat released from steam congealing to water liquid. A dehumidification heat pump is equal to the dehumidification process (moisture removal or moisture dehumidifying) plus a heat pump process (energy recycling). A dehumidification heat pump can internally collect all the latent heat and sensible heat during air exhaust, bringing no waste heat to the outside.
The evaporation of sludge moisture absorbs latent heat; and the condensation of the generated vapor on the heat pump cycle releases latent heat. The evaporation process absorbs the same quantity of latent heat that the condensation process produces, according to the laws of thermodynamics and the law of conservation of energy. As a result, the drying process does not require additional heat capacity, resulting in the reduction of energy costs. The energy consumed during the process is only the electricity needed to operate the compressors and the fans or air handlers.
We have lender partnerships in place to finance wastewater and sludge systems with no upfront costs. The agreement is structured to tailor a program that matches the current monthly sludge treatment investment, while certifying the biosolids to Class A status.
