Sludge is a bi-product from treatment of wastewater at any traditional wastewater treatment plant. The sludge contains pathogens, chemical constituents and other microorganisms. Sludge must be handled with care to avoid contact with pathogens. Sludge might be contaminated with heavy metals and other pollutants, particularly when industrial wastes are disposed into the sewer. Pre-treatment of industrial wastes is hence essential before discharge to the sewer. Treatment of sludge contaminated with high concentrations of heavy metals or toxic chemicals will be more difficult and the potential for re-use of the sludge will be limited. New environmental regulations have imposed limitations on a wide variety of organic and inorganic pollutants in industrial waste waters. Rapid industrialization and stringent environmental regulations are the major drivers triggering the growth of sludge treatment chemicals market.
