NEW STUDY: OFT TECHNOLOGY EFFICIENTLY CONVERTS SLUDGE TO BIOFUELS

A test-based study carried out in cooperation with Aarhus University has demonstrated that Organic Fuel Technology’s micro-wave cracking technology yields very good mass- and energy-balances.

The technology produces so much oil, gas and char from dried, de-gassed sludge, that it has been necessary to adjust upwards the assumptions on the energy content of dried sludge which are normally applied.

The produced gas and char is suffieicnt to run the ncessary drying process for sludge, and the produced oil has a good energy content (37 MJ/kg) and is of a quality, which makes it possible to use it as bio-fuel for instance in maritime tranportation.

The results suggest that in treating waste water sludge, the OFT technology is superior to for instance pyrolysis, with better energy production and better quality end products
