Combustion of Sewage Sludge and Coal Powder

Abstract—The technology to facilitate liquid sewage sludge disposal with minimum energy consumption for primary drying before incineration in a furnace is proposed. The possibility to use an industrial boiler was studied experimentally. The experimental test-rig was developed at Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and the proposed concept was demonstrated successfully. Sewage sludge from municipal wastewater plants with a moisture content of up to 95-99% combined with pulverized coal and liquid light fuel at various ratios was burnt. Sewage sludge co-combustion leads to an insignificant temperature reduction inside the furnace, and is able to provide stable combustion with low NOx and CO emissions.

Index Terms—Component, formatting, sewage sludge, liquid, incineration.
