Hydrothermal treatment of sludge for deep dewatering and soil application

This project aims to develop hydrothermal treatment technologies for deep dewatering of sludge in the presence of biomass or chemical additives. The treated and dewatered sludge that has improved stability and enhanced carbon content will be used as an organic fertiliser for soil application.
