Environmental Protection Agency,;] -- "Briefly, the position papers discuss institutional constraints, hydrologic and nutrient management, pathogens, metals, organics, engineering and economics, and an overview of public health effects". Abstract. The effect of temperature on the composting reaction of sewage sludge was investigated at 50, 60, and 70°C. The total amount of CO 2 evolved and the final conversion of volatile matter were maximum at 60°C., suggesting that the optimal temperature for composting was around 60°C. The specific CO 2 evolution rate (moles of CO 2 evolved per hour per viable cell) was maximum at 70° by:

    Technical Abstract: This special edition of the journal is devoted entirely to the workshop that USEPA and USDA co-hosted on Emerging Pathogens and Disinfection Technologies for Sewage Sludge and Animal Manure. The purpose of the workshop was to review, discuss, and evaluate the effectiveness of current sewage sludge and manure treatment.

Biological decomposition and stabilization of sewage sludge under conditions which allow development of thermophilic temperatures (composting) can effect considerable drying. This reduces costs of handling and increases the attractiveness of compost for reuse or disposal.

Composting of sewage sludge to reduce odours and improve breakdown The treatment is used to speed up fermentation and humification.

After weeks and just 4 turning processes, the high-quality, nutrient-rich compost is ready. However, many studies indicate that composting sewage sludge itself produces low quality compost due to its high humidity, low air permeability, and high nitrogen content (4%–5% s.m.).

Therefore, in order to obtain a suitable C:N ratio, previously dehydrated sludge should be mixed with an additional organic carbon source.

Composting should be applied preferably to fresh sludge (rich in OM and nitrogen) but can also be used on digested or stabilised aerobic sludge.

The quality of sewage sludge depends on many factors and the final disposal is also very diverse.

The sludge was ob-tained each day and stored in a gal storagetank. Before vacuum filtration, the sludge wasconditioned with ferric chloride and lime or apolymer to aid filtration.

The sludge was thendewatered on a vacuum filter and the cake wasready for feeding to the composter. Akin, E.W., W. Jakubowski, J.
