Treść
According to a Polish Law that took effect on 14 December 2012, sewage sludge is a waste. Wastes are defined as substances that the holder discards, intends to discard or is required to discard. As characterised by Polish standard PNEN 12832: 2004, sewage sludge is a mixture of water and solids that are separated from various types of plants as a result of natural or artificial processes. According to the Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 definition, sewage sludge is the same entity as biomass. On the one hand, sewage sludge is treated as waste; on the other hand, it is treated as a full-fledged energy fuel that exhibits dry combustion kinetics similar to brown coal. The physical, chemical, sanitary, and technological properties of sewage sludge are important and change depending on the type and method of sewage treatment. Because of its unusual properties, sewage sludge is different from coal and biomass. But, sewage sludge combustion (similar to coal and biomass) includes drying, devolatilization and the combustion of volatiles and char. Experimental research regarding the pyrolysis and combustion of sewage sludge compared to biomass and coal is, therefore, necessary. This paper presents the results of experimental studies from a comparative analysis of thermogravimetry (TG) and mass spectrometry (MS) of sewage sludge, coal and biomass and their mixes.
