In cooperation with the Faculty of Agriculture of Mendel University in Brno and the Faculty of Chemistry of Brno University of Technology, we have started research and development of a sewage sludge utilization dryer. This development is supported by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic within the TREND Program for the Support of Industrial Research and Experimental Development.

    The main goal of the project is the development and construction of a wastewater treatment sludge utilization dryer with a number of innovative elements and focusing purely on the issue of this heterogeneous material. Another goal is material research of sludge, their behavior in different conditions and with regard to its composition. The outputs and results of this research will be used for the actual design of individual parts of the dryer. Last but not least, the problem of odor at the output of technology will be addressed, as an important parameter limiting the location of similar technologies near buildings.
