This volume contains the proceedings of a workshop held in Lappeenranta, Finland, in June 1990 under the EC's COST 681 programme. The first session dealt with studies of the physical properties of sewage sludge and consisted of four papers covering: - an assessment of the pollution potential of dumped sludge; - the definition of a standard for the concept of congealed sludge; - a PC-based operator system for sludge dewatering, and - the influence of digestion on sludge characteristics. The second session dealt with four disposal studies of sewage sludge. These considered: - economic and quality aspects of composting sewage sludge; - co-landfilling and co-digestion of sewage sludge and urban solid refuse; - integrated treatment of solid waste, sewage sludge and liquid manure, and - integrated solid waste and sludge treatment by the WABIO process.
