Using carbonation lime sludge in the co-composting of wastewater sludge and green waste: Physicochemical and microbial monitoring [Full subscriber]

Abstract The development of human activities, the acceleration of economic growth, and the extensive construction of wastewater treatment plants in Morocco, has led to a considerable increase in the amount of sludge. This sludge is piled next to the factories, either stored on-site or mixed with household waste in landfills without any treatment. Furthermore, the sugar industry in Morocco annually produces about 270000 tons of carbonation lime sludge. The objective of this study was to evaluate how much we can improve the co-composting of wastewater sludge and green waste using carbonation lime sludge.Three different mixtures of wastewater sludge with green…
