The Community installs a system in the Archena treatment plant that improves the sludge and minimizes the discharges during the rains (07/05/2019)

The Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) of Archena has a new system that improves the quality of the sludge.

Specifically, two centrifugal decanters have been installed responsible for the dewatering of the sludge generated in order to "make this work more efficient, with lower humidity and lower energy consumption. carbon footprint of the facility and the possible spillage will be minimized during the rain episodes ", explained the Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Ángel del Amor, during his visit to the facility.

This new system has greater capacity and can operate by telecontrol, which allows receiving the information in real time in case any incident occurs.

Del Amor, who was accompanied by the mayor of Archena, Patricia Fernandez, said that "this project is completed with the necessary auxiliary, electrical and control facilities, as well as the improvement of the deodorization system and other elements of the dehydration room, what guarantees its effectiveness ".

The treatment plants not only generate purified water for reuse in irrigation, but also produce organic matter for soils in the form of biological sludge.

In the Region, more than 134,000 tons of sludge per year are produced that are destined for composting or its application in agriculture.

Specifically, the sludge from the Archena WWTP is destined for composting.

In the sludge line of any WWTP, the bacteria responsible for the purification are dehydrated, once they have carried out their work, passing from a liquid support to concentrating them solidly.

Once in this state, the sludge is transported by trucks to the composting plant.
