Organic Sludge-To-Energy and Derived Residues Converted to Innovative Anti-Fugal Lightweight Building Materials

Project Details


Recognizing the importance of integrated organic sludge converted to resources and energy, theobjectives of this study were to: (1) establish feasibility assessment of co-gasified of multiple organicsludge and enhancement of energy yield; (2) develop the innovative lightweight materialsmanufactured from residues and assessment of the environmental safety and carbon emissionreduction. In this project, we focus on the sludges produced from wastewater treatment plant ofpaper-mill, dyeing and finishing and industrial park which are generated a lot of amounts every yearin Taiwan. This project investigates the information of enhanced energy conversion efficiency,optimum operation parameters, and mass and energy balance in co-gasification of various organicsludge. Meanwhile, residues produced from organic sludge gasification were also considered as rawmaterials for manufacturing the innovative anti-fungal lightweight materials. The assessment ofcarbon dioxide reduction, environmental safety and ecological toxicity in anti-fungal lightweightmaterials manufacturing were also discussed in this project.
