Sewage Sludge Recycling and Disposal
Contribution to Books
Handbook of Environmental Engineering: Solid Waste Engineering and Management: Volume 2
This chapter introduces the potential recycling of sewage sludge in landfill cover application. The subtopic includes the generation and properties of sewage sludge as well as the current practices on sludge handling, treatment, and management. Since 2000, the recycling of sewage sludge has gained interest around the world in order to manage the sludge sustainably and economically. Nevertheless, sludge modification is required to stabilize and enhance the mechanical and geotechnical performance of the sludge. The leaching behavior was also studied in order to address the short- and long-term environmental effects of using the modified sludge for various applications.
