This paper discusses energy requirements and recovery effectiveness of two biosolids treatment systems:

Anaerobic digestion and thermal drying for solids reduction and energy recovery


Anaerobic digestion followed by thermal conversion for energy recovery


The analysis included for each alternative an energy balance and the life-cycle costs. Renewable energy credits, grants or incentives that may apply to each of these scenarios are also included.

This information enables a comparison of two large-plant technology pairings, considering the current regulatory situation, government incentives, and the emerging environmental commodities market.
