Title: Processing sediment, waste and sludge into ceramic construction materials
The vBc 3000 French industrial projects will enable not only the processing of sewage sludge and sediments of dredging operations but also the production of new materials as well as the reduction of the impact on natural resources. The vBc 3000 technique processes sewage sludge or organic waste by mixing it with other clay mineral residues to make ceramic building materials. The thermal power necessary for the process comes essentially from incorporated organic materials. This process is particularly suited for the production of expanded clay gravel, which is used in products/works of high environmental quality. A direct advantage is the reduction of impact on natural resources.
