This business opportunity report analyzes the market and developments in sludge treatment and odor control on a global market scale. Sludge treatment describes the processes used to manage and dispose of the products or sludges produced during sewage treatment. Odor control is an important factor in treating and disposing of in a safe and effective manner the biosolids accumulated in any wastewater treatment process. There is also the possibility that the sludge is contaminated with some toxic organic and inorganic compounds. A number of management approaches might be used in the disposal of sludge and care must be taken to select the most suitable action alternatives.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research report provides an in-depth analysis of the global sludge treatment and odor control equipment market. These methods include sludge digestion, sludge dewatering, sludge drying, and physical, chemical, and biological odor control technologies. The advanced technologies are so called because of their improved effectiveness in treating sludge and wastewater. It is desired to create a document that will assist engineers, utilities, and corporate business planners in assessing the global components and demands for advanced sludge treatment and odor control.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Einstein was correct. Matter can be neither created nor destroyed. Wastewater and sludge are continually being produced, and the pollutants never completely disappear. With each passing year, the quality of the Earth’s water measurably deteriorates and the amount of sludge or dewatered wastewater increases. For sludge, it is hoped that the level of harmful and toxic residues can be reduced and there is some hope that some of the sludge can be reclaimed and reused in a safe and economically efficient manner. Sludge might include heavy metals, organic industrial chemicals, agricultural chemicals, oils/greases, and miscellaneous hazardous pollutants, such as medical wastes and, perhaps most obnoxious of all, a disagreeable odor.
This report is intended for those who desire an analysis of the global sludge treatment and odor control equipment markets. This technical marketing report seeks to quantify the various markets, forecasts the market trends, traces significant developments, and profiles companies that are active in the market sectors. This business opportunity report contains information and conclusions that are unique, insightful, and have a forward-thinking knowledge of the subject. This should be of advantage to manufacturers, suppliers, and to local, state and government entities.
