Environmental Considerations and Cost Benefit
  • Sewage spills into rivers, streams, and onto seashores, is becoming a daily news event and the problem will not simply go away without changing current sludge disposal practices.
  • Many communities still pump untreated sewage water into coastal waters, waterways, and Lakes. The low operating cost of the DIBS technology now ensures any decision to continue these practices is a choice - not a requirement.
  • The DIBS technology eliminates sludge, producing three commercially valuable products, energy, sand and clean water thereby converting sludge into a valuable asset.
  • When designed into a new wastewater treatment plant, or substituted as an alternative disposal method during wastewater plant renovation, treatment plant management can now realize significant cost reduction.
  • The DIBS unit is modular. An installation is sized to meet current demand and can be readily expanded to accommodate new growth.
  • The DIBS process is completely odor free and all byproducts are sterile.
  • The carbon emission from the suspension fired fuel in the DIBS process is bio-genic and not a producer of greenhouse gas. Fixed carbon (measured from oil contaminants), is a small percentage in the fuel used, usually less than 1% of the dry weight of the powdered fuel used in the thermal process.
