Abstract: The need to change the current paradigm from linear economy to circular economy makes the recovery of resources from waste effluents one of the current and future technological priorities. In this context, sewage sludge represents a great challenge and at the same time a great opportunity for the recovery of resources, both material, and energy. Within the framework of the H2020 SMART Plant project, BETA Tech. Centre is developing two technologies to maximise resource recovery from

Firstly, phosphorus-rich biofertilisers are being produced through advanced dynamic composting processes treating sludge from EBPR and SCENA processes. Secondly, cellulose-rich sludge is being treated through biodrying processes to produce biomass fuel with a calorific value similar to that of pine chips.
