Abstract:

This review section covers journal articles and conference papers related to biosolids and sludge management that were published in 2008. The literature review has been divided into the following sections:

•Biosolids regulation and management issues,

•Biosolids characteristics and measurement,

•Sludge treatment technologies,

•Disposal and reuse,

•Odor and air emission, energy issues,

•Risk Analysis

The sludge treatment technologies include: pretreatment and sludge minimization, anaerobic digestion, aerobic digestion, alkaline stabilization, composting, dewatering, drying and innovative technologies. The disposal and reuse section covers combustion/incineration, pyrolysis, and land application that reviews issues pertaining to nutrients, heavy metals, synthetic organics, and pathogens. Biosolids have sometimes been used for the reclamation of marginal or contaminated lands - such applications have been classified under non-agricultural uses.
