Sludge is a major waste flow. For that reason, the conversion of sludge into a usable raw material has for years received considerable attention in terms of both time and money. In 2018 this resulted in the testing of a small trial installation. This installation demonstrated that sludge can be converted into a basic raw material, through an innovative approach. Following re-engineering, the decision was taken to build a prototype at the end of 2018. This new installation will be operational in March 2019, but even after that time will require further optimisation. Other water authorities have already shown an interest in the installation.
