Cellulosic Sludge Handling and Dewatering for the first full-scale fine screening installation in the Netherlands

Aarle-Rixtel WWTP, Netherlands, 2016 -  An increase in sewage at the wastewater treatment plant in Aarle-Rixtel, made it necessary to upgrade the plant to boost capacity. Instead of a costly traditional expansion BWA chose a more sustainable solution.
They installed ten fine screens that retrieve 5.000kg of cellulose fibers daily. This screening process relieves the purification process and allows more sewage than previously to be handled. The cellulose recovered from toilet paper is captured in large containers and can be recycled.
