BEIJING BIOSOLIDS STRATEGY STUDY
Abstract:Beijing, China currently transports dewatered, digested and undigested sludges to rural areas for stockpiling and traditional agricultural use. As the city grows, this is no longer a viable option. Several new wastewater treatment plants are expected to be on-line by 2008 which will nearly double the current sludge production. This study recommends that Beijing use combined heat drying/composting as the primary utilization strategy. It also recommends Beijing divert as much sludge as practical to pre-calciner type cement kilns for air pollution control, and to conventional cement kilns as supplemental fuel to be burned with coal and limestone.
