Sewage Sludge

FUCHS Solutions

Aerobic sewage sludge treatment for your need

Sewage sludge contains lots of valuable nutrients for agricultural use. Thoroughly stabilized and disinfected it becomes a highly welcome fertilizer with minimum impact on the environment.

In 1968 Hubert K. E. Fuchs discovered the phenomena of aerobic thermophilic degradation of pig and cattle slurry. A method to stabilize and disinfect slurry was developed. This discovery and one decade of intensive cooperation between FUCHS, universities and research institutes led to the development of the FUCHS ATAD Process (Autoheated Thermophilic Aerobic Digestion).

Apart from our renowned and well-established ATAD Process and based on the later development of the CENTROX Aerator with Foam Control we are today also able to design low-priced and uncomplex plants for sludge treatment. 

Until today more than 80 ATAD plants have been built worldwide. They have been running to the full satisfaction of the customer – some even for decades.
