You may often wonder, where does all our poop go? Treating our sewage water & returning it to the environment is very costly. The bulk of the cost actually comes from treating sludge, a semi-solid by-product of sewage treatment. It accounts for almost 40-60% of the total cost to treat sewage water. So, what is sludge??? Most traditional technologies used to treat our domestic wastewater use a process called Activated Sludge. This process actively creates a semi-solid slurry consisting of bacteria, nutrients, and potentially hazardous wastes known as "sludge". Once this sludge settles, treated water can be returned back to the environment. However, the excess sludge left behind has to go through a separate and costly series of steps to remove the concentrated toxins within.
What are our solutions? 1. Sludge as fertilizer? This is the most common secondary use of sewage sludge globally. However, many countries have started to ban this practice as toxins present in sewage sludge have been showing up in our food supply. Some countries even ship their sewage sludge to different countries because of the high levels of toxins. 2. Sludge as biofuel? Although burning biofuel for electricity produces less amounts of greenhouse gas emissions, it is still a great polluter of our atmosphere. We no longer have the luxury of half-steps to secure our future environment. Therefore, we must not only find completely clean sources of energy, but also clean methods of dealing with our waste.
BUT, What if we didn't produce sludge at all?? BioPipe's (wholly owned subsidiary of LQWC) no sludge technology uses a different biological process modelled after nature. It has optimized the biofilm or attached growth methodology to treat domestic sewage water without producing sludge. Other added benefits include: - No Odor - Low Noise - Low/Flexible Footprint - Modular Design - Low Energy Consumption - Low Maintenance - Automatically Controlled
