    On the necessity of sludge conditioning with non-organic polymer : AOP approach
    (DEStech Publications, 2009-07) ; ;
    Organic polymers have long been used as sludge conditioners to improve its dewaterability in sludge management practice. Although polymers can bring about a great dewatering performance of the sludge, their potential health related risk remains unknown regarding their residual in dewatered sludge cakes in the environment when the sludge is finally disposed as landfill especially in long term point of view. For this regard, as an initiative action, Fenton (Fe2+/H2O2) and its related reagents were tested in this study as potential alternative an alum sludge conditioners for the purpose of eliminating the perceived long term risk associated with polymer residual in the environment.
