Sludge Management Equipment Market: Overview
Sewage sludge treatment is described as the processes used to manage and dispose of sewage sludge produced during sewage treatment. Sludge is a waste stream, but through treatment & processing can be regarded as a saleable product that can provide an additional revenue stream. Sludge comprises large amounts of water with lesser amounts of solid material removed from liquid sewage. Sludge management equipment reduces sludge weight and volume to reduce disposal costs, and potential health risks of labors. Treatment of sludge is done prior to the disposal. Treated sludge is sold to farmers for use as a fertilizers, as it improves soil at degraded mine sites and on forestry land.
