PROJECT TITLE: FS ON POTENTIAL FOR MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIAL SLUDGE TREATMENT AND USE IN BIH
Project duration: 2019-2020
Main partners: KemisBH, d.o.o Lukavac; Coca-Cola HBC B-H d.o.o. Sarajevo; PU Komunalac d.d. Gradacac
Project founded by: UNDP, the Czech-UNDP Partnership for SDGs
Project aims to investigate potentials of sludge treatment and reuse in Bosnia and Herzegovina, based on the innovative technological approaches developed in the Czech Republic. These innovative technologies need to be assessed with respect to the sludge characteristics in BiH and potentials in the country. Results of the FS have the potential to be scaled up and reproduced throughout the country.
Project focuses on laboratory and off site analysis (Pilot testing) and sludge treatment, that would provide insight into the sludge characteristics and based on in-country legislation and treatment capacities lead to recommendation for sludge utilization. It would than be possible to identify the amounts of sludge to be treated, as well as sludge calorific value, energy expected to be produced and/or amount of the sludge to be used as fertilizer, allowing for reduction of chemical fertilizer use. In addition will also allow for estimations of costs for scaling up and overall operational costs of the treatment facilities.
