Abstract

This report summarises the activities of the Community concerted action programme (COST 681) on the treatment and use of sewage sludge, and latterly of liquid agricultural waste, from its inception in the early 1970s to the end of 1990. The report outlines technical problems encountered, for example in processing sludge, in composting, incineration, pyrolysis and in dealing with animal wastes and odours. Problems that remain include screening, consolidation, stabilisation and de-watering.
