How do they harvest sewage?
The wastewater treatment plant operators in some municipalities use large scrap trucks to collect sewage sludge from the wastewater treatment plant. The trucks are equipped with large grates that can catch large pieces of sludge. The truck then drives the sludge to a nearby location where it can be disposed of. This practice is very common in European and Asian countries. In some municipalities, the sludge is dried out of doors on drying beds. The dry matter content of this sludge can be as high as 10 percent, giving a sludge with low water content (3 to 5%) and high dry matter content (70 to 90%). This type of sludge can then be used for agricultural purposes or for other purposes. Sludge that has been dried out will have a high moisture content (5 to 10%), which will make it unsuitable for composting.
