Municipal sludge for utilization

The goal of the project is to develop new solutions for the treatment of municipal sludge in order to utilize it in fertilizers and water treatment materials. The produced sludge-based materials could be used in the water treatment plants to enhance water purification and thus reduce the environmental impacts of the plants. The project supports the low carbon approach by increasing the utilization of organic fertilizers and thus reducing the amount of needed synthetic fertilizers.
