Abstract:

SAFE TREATMENT AND UTILIZATION OF MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER SLUDGES IS A TOPIC OF SIGNIFICANT CONCERN. THERE IS DEFINITE NEED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TREATMENT PROCESS WHICH DOES ALL THE FOLLOWING: CONFORMS TO U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR A "PROCESS TO FURTHER REDUCE PATHOGENS" ,CREATES A PRODUCT NOT SUBJECT TO REINFECTION., PRODUCES A MATERIAL SUITABLE FOR BENEFICIAL USE., IS ECONOMIC TO UTILIZE., PRODUCES A NON-TOXIC PRODUCT. THIS RESEARCH WILL AFFORD SUCH A TREATMENT. IT IS BASED ON THE PATENTED CHEMFIX PROCESS AND AND UTILIZES AND EXPANDS UPON THE CHEMISTRY INTRINSIC TO THE PROCESS. INACTIVATION OF PATHOGENIC ORGANISMS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BYHIGH PH AND AMMONIA DISINFECTION. METALS WILL BE IMMOBILIZEDTHROUGH CHEMICAL REDUCTION OR IMMOBILIZED BY SOIL ABSORPTIONPHENOMENA. CHEMICAL TESTS WILL COMPARE THE PRODUCT WITH AGRICULTURAL LIME AND FERTILIZER PARAMETERS TO ESTABLISH THEECONOMIC VALUE OF THE PRODUCT IN AGRICULTURE. PHYSICAL TESTING WILL INDICATE VIABILITY OF THE PRODUCT FOR LANDFILL COVER, ROAD BASE MATERIAL OR BUILDING, SOIL AMENDER, OR SLOPE STABILIZER.
