Project ID: 16079
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report for the 'Sustainable and safe re-use of municipal sewage sludge for nutrient recovery' (SUSAN) project. The report reveals how an environmentally friendly technology for sewage sludge treatment was developed and optimised aiming at nutrient recovery. The SUSAN option is a two step thermal treatment. An economic operation of large-scale facilities treating sewage sludge ashes according to the SUSAN-technology is expected in the near future. A pilot plant for fertiliser production from sewage sludge ashes is currently in operation.
