An Innovative and Energy-Efficient Radio Frequency Pretreatment on Emerging Micropollutants and Transformation Products in Anaerobic Sludge Digestion for Waste Reuse

Project description

An innovative proposal for wastewater management

The increasing quantity of sludge and the costs related to its disposal, as well as the strict regulations associated with this, represent an important issue in wastewater process management. The use of organic wastewater solids in agriculture is a low-cost option. Anaerobic digestion is normally used for the stabilisation of sludge before reusing the biosolids. Nevertheless, the presence of pharmaceutical and self-care products in sludge poses a threat to public health. The EU-funded RADIOFREPOLIS project aims to study an innovative radio frequency sludge pre-treatment before anaerobic digestion occurs. This will reduce toxicity by limiting the presence of pharmaceutical and self-care products to improve sludge quality.
