Project Description


Barwon Water produces almost 700 tons of dry solid sludge per annum from its two main water treatment plants at Wurdee Buloc and the Moorabool River. How can sludge be turned from being a cost impediment for water utilities to becoming a source of revenue that is productive for the overall economy?
