Abstract

The experimental results of the operation of eleven pilot-scale, sludge drying reed bed units treating wastewater sludge are presented. The units started operation in September of 2007 and had different design, construction and operation characteristics (i.e., porous media origin and size, presence of plants, plant species, sludge load, presence of ventilation tubes). All units were fed with activated sludge. Samples taken from the raw and residual sludge of each unit were analyzed in order to determine TS and VS content, Total Kjedlahl Nitrogen (TKN), Total Phosphorus (TP), Nitrite and Nitrate and draw conclusions on optimizing operation of such facilities.
