Reduction of Excess Sludge Production

Reduction of Excess Sludge Production



TECHNOCON has developed a Technology for the Reduction of Excess Sludge Production in biological wastewater treatment plants by the addition of VITA 99.


Advantages

  • Reduction of excess sludge (up to 60 %) due to a faster metabolism, a higher activity of microorganisms and a limitation of the simultaneous cell division
  • No constructional changes of the treatment plant and no investment costs required
  • Improved sludge characteristics and process stability
  • Enhanced effluent water quality (COD < 20 mg/L)
  • Decrease of sludge treatment costs (energy, personnel etc.) by the reduction of throughput
