Vljudno vabljeni na predavanje dr. Tine Seljak (so-vodja fokusnega področja Trajnostna energija v našem SRIP-u), ki bo kot trenutno gostujoči predavatelj na Politecnico di Milano predstavil izzive in priložnosti, ki se porajajo v procesu sežiga komunalnega blata.
Predavanje bo potekalo v četrtek, 19. 1. 2023, od 10. ure dalje, v Politecnico di Milano, Castigliano Room (Building 5, Piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32) in preko spleta. Za udeležbo preko spleta je potrebna prijava TUKAJ.
With improvements in communal infrastructure and efficient wastewater collection and treatment, wastewater sludge quantities increased substantially in the recent decades. Being treated as undesired waste at first, the introduction of circular thinking shed a light on its role as a useful side-stream and a valuable source of secondary raw materials. Several processes are being developed for safe use of sludge in agriculture, however many types are still facing a challenge of contamination and heterogeneity which require robust treatment approaches. With incineration being the most wide-spread practice, high sludge moisture and inorganic content require specific approaches to maximize its environmental acceptability and yield a suitable residue, while possibly playing a role of bioenergy source. The seminar will focus on the balance between these roles by exposing the challenges related to thermal treatment, associated technical developments and impact of upcoming legislative improvements, which together will draft the philosophy for future design of sludge incineration systems.
