Sludge and Air treatment

A sustainable way to reduce excess sludge volume while making advantage of its intrinsic characteristics is to recover its energy potential and use solar power to dehydrate the residual digested sludge.

Energy from sludge.

Our BIOTIM® Solids anaerobic reactor is designed for high biogas yield while significantly reducing sludge volume.

In the BIOTIM® Solids reactor, the sludge undergoes a mesophilic anaerobic digestion converting the organic compounds into methane. The methane is desulphurized before fueling the combined heat and power generation units.

Biogas purification

Biogas desulphurization is necessary to increase life duration of combustion engines while reducing running cost. The BIOTIM® Scrubber uses activated sludge from biological wastewater treatment as a washing medium, reducing costs for both water and chemicals.

Using solar heat for sludge drying

In regions where the sun is abundant, solar energy is used for sludge dewatering.

In the Fez and Marrakech municipal wastewater treatment plants for instance, automated robots stir digested sludge in large greenhouses while the sun provides the thermal heat for sludge dehydration, increasing dry solids concentration.

HYDROGONE® Greenhouse Drying significantly reduces sludge volume and transportation cost.

Biogas and odor treatment expertise

We include odor treatment and biogas cleansing in every wastewater treatment project. Our Waterleau France - Socrematic office offers air pollution treatment expertise for a multitude of other industrial applications.

Odor control: eliminating causes of discomfort

Our BIOTON bio-filter uses moist organic materials to adsorb and then biologically degrade odorous compounds. Cooled and humidified air from covered wastewater treatment premises is injected through a grid of perforated pipes into a bed of filtration media.

Biological odor treatment relies on the ability of micro-organisms to degrade a wide variety of organic compounds by oxidizing or ‘eating’ them to carbon dioxide, water and salts when attached to a specific organic or inorganic substrate. As such, biological air oxidation can be considered as the air equivalent of biological water treatment.

Biogas desulphurization

Biogas Desulphurization is necessary to increase life duration of combustion engines while reducing running costs. The BIOTIM® Scrubber uses activated sludge from biological wastewater treatment as a washing medium, omitting chemicals reducing costs for both water and chemicals.
