Melbourne Water Sludge Trial

Client

Melbourne Water

Size

Pilot scale trial

Location

Tarago, VIC

Goal

To assess feasibility for full scale sludge drying and treatment using Reedbed Technology

Obstacles

Varying solids and algae content

Solution

Wastewater sludge treatment reedcells

Key Project Features

Our wastewater sludge treatment reedcells for this site employed a novel drainage and loading system. Our reebed systems provide a sustainable solution for sludge drying and treatment which ensures low operating expenditure, low maintenance, and substantial operational and disposal cost savings.

 

Key Project Outcomes

  • Low maintenance sludge treatment system
  • High loading rates and high % solids achieved – resulting in reduced operational and disposal costs
  • Moving towards implementation of a full scale system
