Reducing Land and Infrastructure Requirements for Water Evaporation from Biosludge through Dry Stacking

Grant number: LP130100395 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016

Completed

Abstract

Melbourne's wastewater treatment plants have limited capacity in their evaporation pans to dry residual solids from wastewater treatment processes. This project will significantly improve the efficiency of new pans by providing an alternative operating method, dry stacking, which has delivered considerable benefits to the mineral industry.
