Co-Processing Sewage Sludge in Cement Kiln in China


Sewage sludge is the by-product from municipal waste water treatment plant and is highly polluted. How to treat the SS in a solid environmental friendly way is strictly concerned in China. In this article, the SS situation and also the treatment methods in China have been introduced. The advantage and some related issues of co-processing SS in cement kiln have been discussed. The technical model and projects of Huaxin cement for co-processing SS in cement kiln also have been introduced.
