Sludge Humification

Sludge Humification is a natural Method for treating biological sludge from wastewater treatment plants and industrial sludge's of any origin. The method of humification is a natural method using constructed wetlands for dewatering, disinfecting and decomposing of organic material in the sludge. The method has been successfully implemented with the Root-Zone Method worldwide for the last 30 years.

Sludge Humification offers competitive advantages over the expensive alternatives of drying and burning processes. After 10-20 years of feeding the root-zone beds with sludge, they are full of humus. Immediately after removing the humus, the beds are ready to be used from the beginning.

This is a very cost-effective and energy-saving process to treat biological sludge from the Communities and also fat, oil and solid remains from the Industry.
