Paddle Dryer Reduces Biosolids Volume Up to 80%
International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Kore Infrastructure to supply a paddle dryer for a biosolids recovery plant currently under construction in Rialto, California.
In the plant, biosolids from wastewater facilities in Los Angeles that have normally gone to landfill will be converted into biodiesel and biochar. Startup is scheduled for the second quarter of 2016.
The Andritz Separation dryer will reduce the biosolids volume by up to 80 percent, while preserving its energy content for further recovery, the company says.
