No. It does not. Read more about this environmentally friendly and cost-efficient sludge treatment system.
Thermal drying of sludge is power intensive. As a rule of thumb you can calculate 0.9 kWh to evaporate
1 litre of water per hour. Blue Ocean Technology’s concept produces sludge with a solids content (SC) of 40-
45%. We supply a drying system that recycles heat and reduces power consumption from 0.9 to 0.6 kWh. The
combination of a low liquid content in the sludge and heat recycling in the drying process results in significantly
reduced operating costs.
Blue Ocean Technology also supplies pyrolysis facilities where the excess heat from the pyrolysis process is used to dry the sludge.
For a facility that feeds approx. 2000 tonnes annually, this concept will require a total of 11-15 kW for the entire
process. Biproducts include bio charcoal (which is a high quality fertilizer), pyrolysis oil for heat production and
excess thermal heat for reuse.
