SUEZ Advanced Solutions set up a pilot FlocFormer in Poland. This technology is to optimize sludge drying systems through advanced floc preparation.
This action was carried out in collaboration with Aquen, a partner of SUEZ and supplier of innovative solutions to improve sludge drying. It lasted two weeks and was performed in a wastewater treatment plant of Dąbrowa Górnicza, a city of 130,000 inhabitants in the south of Poland.
The aim of these tests was to demonstrate the improvement in the efficiency of the existing drying process, based on a belt filter press. In particular, during the pilot test, the resultant dry solid increased from 19% to 22%, representing a considerable saving in sludge management costs.
