The main goal of AGquadro society is the economical optimization of everything is related to Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), from the primary treatment to the final sludge disposal, by using an open-minded approach to the problems and mixing the latest technologies with old knowledge and real-life experience on the field.
In water treatment, It is well known that biological masses at the end of their task become the so-called sludge. Plant managers need to remove it from the process, but disposal has reached a huge cost today (about 180 €/ton), that seems to increase very quickly in the near future. The high costs are due to high humidity and weight of sludge, that after mechanical dewatering contains at least 80% of water and 20 % of dry solids.
The disposal of such a sludge is very difficult, uneconomic and environmentally unsustainable. AGquadro and its engineers are working to find a sustainable solution, the feasibility project for a Solar Sludge Drying System made for Gioia Tauro WWTP is an example.
The Gioia Tauro treatment platform is the largest in Calabria with its 40.000 square meters of areal extension.
The influent wastewater are both civil and industrial and come from about 16 different municipalities, for a total of about 280.000 population equivalent (PE).
