Sludge

Sludge dewatering can be a tricky operation due to its varying composition. It can also be costly if not handled correctly, in terms of higher transport and disposal costs, sludge spills and fines, and overdosing of chemicals. Our complete product portfolio and deep knowledge allows you to separate liquid from solids in all sludge types on all kinds of dewatering equipment, to get the best recovery rates and filtrate water quality.

Sludge dewatering

It is important that sludge volumes are kept at a minimum with a high dry-solids content to reduce disposal costs. Our customers report success cases in sludge dewatering where we have significantly increased dry solids. This gives direct benefits not only in reduced costs, but also by increasing the dewatering unit capacity at the same polymer dosage. In addition, odor control, mainly hydrogen sulfide and ammonia emissions, can be improved and cleanouts due to struvite reduced.

Partnering with us offers you a full range of organic and inorganic coagulants and polymers, combined with monitoring and optimizing solutions and extensive application knowhow. Our approach to enhanced sludge dewatering includes technologies for smart process management and enables the optimization of chemical consumption, always delivering the best dewatering performance.

More and more industries are starting to run anaerobic digesters to capture the full energy potential of their organic waste. Producing biogas from organic sludge is a viable way to reduce energy costs. We can help you in boosting your biogas production capability.

Biogas

Biomass utilization is one of the answers to the global need to minimize our environmental footprint, and the amount of organic waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source that overlaps with wastewater management. It makes use of organic waste, such as industrial and household biowaste, or wastewater sludge. Biogas is gaining ground as a promising form of renewable energy used to create electricity and heat.

Each biogas process is unique and has different needs depending on substrate composition, digestion technology, digestate treatment and gas utilization. We work together with you to find the correct customized solution for each case depending on the content of the biomass. With the help of Kemira expertise, you can increase biogas yield, gas quality and the cost-efficiency of waste disposal.
