The qualities of sludge generated and the variations in potential processing technologies for pathogen reduction pose a challenge to those evaluating sludge management. Some of the key factors that should be considered when evaluating sludge management options include:

  • Land requirements
  • Equipment requirements
  • Availability of Required additives
  • Desired product end use

The extent to which these factors influence the implementation of a particular processing technology will vary, but in all cases, they will influence the cost and application of any of the technologies.
