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, the objectives of this study were to: (1) establish feasibility assessment of co-gasified of multiple organic sludge and enhancement of energy yield; (2) develop the innovative lightweight materials manufactured from residues and assessment of the environmental safety and carbon emission reduction. In this project, we focus on the sludges produced from municipal or other wastewater treatment plant of paper-mill, dyeing and finishing and industrial park which are generated a lot of amounts every year in Taiwan. This project investigates the information of enhanced energy conversion efficiency, optimum operation parameters, and mass and energy balance in co-gasification of various organic sludge. Meanwhile, residues produced from organic sludge gasification were also considered as raw materials for manufacturing the innovative anti-fungal lightweight materials. The assessment of carbon dioxide reduction, environmental safety and ecological toxicity in anti-fungal lightweight materials manufacturing were also discussed in this project.
