## Analysis of sedimentary management on the example of a selected wastewater treatment plant

#### Abstract

Sewage sludge is a by-product of the treatment of industrial and municipal wastewater. Their chemical composition promotes re-use in soil due to the content of organic substances and biogenic elements. In sewage sludge, the presence of heavy metals and pathogenic microorganisms can also be noticed. At present, sewage sludge can be important as soil improver, or during reclamation of devastated areas after checking the permissible levels of heavy metal concentrations, according to the ordinance of the Minister of the Environment on municipal sewage sludge. The aim of this engineering work was to present and review the sedimentary management of the sewage plant in Pruszków. By obtaining data from the employees of the sewage plant and during their own inventory, an analysis was carried out that allowed for the assessment of the sewage sludge treatment process. The engineering work consists of two parts. In the first part, for the purpose of the introduction, the general characteristics of the sewage plant together with the characteristics of the sewage treatment string and the conditions of sewage discharge to the receiver were cited. The second part is devoted to the quantity and quality of sewage sludge produced at the sewage plant in Pruszków. In the second part of the work you can also read about the use of sewage sludge for energy purposes and compare biogas generated from sewage sludge with conventional fossil fuels. I hope that the engineering work will bring closer the date of sewage sludge and help assess whether sewage sludge can be treated as waste or as a raw material for re-use.
