KTU APINI presents ENERCOM at ISWA World Congress 2013 in Vienna

Associate professor of the Institute for Environmental Engineering (APINI) at KTU Irina Kliopova presented her results from research for generation of solid recovered substitute fuel within the ENERCOM project at Session 21, ISWA Congress 2013 in Vienna.

With the objective of assessing possibilities to produce solid recovered fuel from a composted mixture of pre-treated sewage sludge and biomass residues KTU APINI members tested and analyzed samples of pellets and briquettes.

The results were presented at ISWA Congress 2013 in the context of the feasibility study “Development of Biodegradable waste management system in Palanga town Municipality” (I. Kliopova, KTU APINI, 2012) which was carried out with the objective to find suitable solutions for the treatment of biodegradable waste and sewage sludge in Palanga, Lithuania. The study analyses alternatives for mechanical biological treatment and sewage sludge aerobic treatment. According to the recommendations of the study 90% of the biodegradable waste including greenery waste and sewage sludge of Palanga town shall be used for compost production and fertilization of green territories as well as for energy production. In that context the generation of solid recovered substitute fuel as evaluated for the ENERCOM project was also considered to be part of an integrated waste management model.
