Next 21/07/16 DRY4GAS Project will be presented in a UVA summer course

Participation of the CEDER-CIEMAT Thermal Conversion Processes Unit in a summer course at the University of Valladolid.

On July 15th and 16th, the I Summer Course on biogas production on farms and its use in mobility will be held at the Soria Campus of the University of Valladolid. Among the conferences scheduled for July 16, Virginia Pérez, researcher of the Thermal Conversion Processes Unit of CEDER-CIEMAT, will present the Project LIFE-DRY4GAS: solar drying of sewage sludge for energy recovery by gasification.

Coordinated by CEDER-CIEMAT's Thermal Conversion Processes Unit, LIFE-DRY4GAS is a demonstration project financed by the European Union's LIFE program, with a budget of almost three million euros. It aims to provide an environmentally sustainable technological solution to the treatment and management of sludge generated in a WWTP (Wastewater Treatment Plant). The main goal of the project is to reduce the environmental impact associated with the conventional treatment and management of WWTP sludge, by implementing the proposed technological solution at the San Javier WWTP (Murcia). The prototype developed in the project, which integrates a hybrid solar-biomass drying, a gasification process, a gas combustion chamber and an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) for electricity production, is being set up there. It also provides an alternative to the traditional agricultural valorization of sludge, by evaluating the quality and effect on the soil of the sludge pretreated, dried and amended with gasification ashes.
