Sludge to Compost Conversion Array

A project that integrates hydraulics, control and end-user protection systems, finding advanced production technologies for non-standard sizes.

The Problem

Accumulated sludge in wastewater settling pools requires evacuation after one or more months, otherwise the pool will be “choked” – the sludge’s height will significantly reduce the pool’s volume, so that the fluid volume will significantly decrease.

The Need

Creating a sludge recycling system, while sterilizing the bacteria during the process, so when it is finished, a compost mixture is obtained for dispersing over the fields and orchards. The aim is replacing spreading cow manure and reducing environmental odors.

Project Requirements

A company came with an existing process, and a relatively small device that partially works with multiple faults throughout the process, requires development and research of existing system failures, planning new recycling arrays dependent on recycled waste, on-site placement plans, working with environmental development companies and construction engineers and architects, automatic feeding array without a person's involvement, adjusting the array to different wastes according to the area and/or the factory to which it is associated, accompanying the construction and the manufacturers,

Activity Modes

Studying the process with the customer for the production of compost. Transition of the existing facility and improving it to work continuously and without problems, the development of new arrays according to the materials fed for recycling, adapting production quantity according to the sludge supply structure according to compost requirement, testing critical system mechanisms and failure points.

The processing arrays of various kinds of organic waste, from sludge in settling pools, chicken cadavers, up to paper. Compost production is carried out within a few weeks, significantly reducing naturally created processes without a person's involvement, without environmental odors and pollution; all the waste entering a recycling array, is sterilized and returned to fields and orchards as compost. No chemicals are used at all for the process.
