Abstract

In this study, industrial wastewater sludges from Tupras oil refinery and Fursan citric acid manufacturing factory were characterized to investigate important parameters for the conditioning and dewatering efficiencies by means of laboratory pressure filtration time (PFT) studies. A preliminary assessment of the most suitable dewatering system (centrifuge, filter press, belt-press) was also provided on the basis of the experimental results.
