Integrated solid/liquid waste storage method
Layout of the physicochemical treatment line
All wastewater flows into the centralised pre-treatment tank for an initial mixing phase. This is followed by neutralisation, then flocculation. The overflow is transferred to a mechanised clarifier. The clarified matter leaving the sedimentation tank is transferred to a drum filter to remove the final remaining suspended solids. The sludge leaving the sedimentation tank is stored in two static thickeners. From there, it is sent to a filter press in which it is dehydrated further before external disposal. The physicochemical plant drainage flows into a container that collects the waters of the industrial zone where the plant is located, connected to the municipal blackwater system which goes to the Ferrara purification plant.
