Hydrothermal treatment of sludge for deep dewatering and producing hydrochar soil amendments

Hydrothermal treatment of sludge

Project dates: 01/07/2019 - 30/06/2022

Dr Zhanying Zhang is developing an innovative process for converting biosolids to a safe hydrochar biofertiliser as part of an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship.

This project aims to develop hydrothermal treatment technologies for deep dewatering of sludge and biosolids. The treated and dewatered sludge and biosolids will be used as safe and stable hydrochar soil amendments.
