VERMICOM: METHODOLOGY AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION OF VERMICOMPOSTING TEXTILE SLUDGE USING RED WORMS

Subject:
Disposal of surplus activated sludge is becoming a major environmental and economic problem for the European Union. The legal framework with increasingly stringent treatment and disposal limitation requires continuous additional investment and cost. Any reduction in toxic residue volume can translate into large savings for polluting industries. VERMICOM proposes the development of a methodology and a cost-effective scaled process for transforming industrial textile sludge into quality compost using vermiculture. The knowledge gap which is hindering the industrial application of vermicomposting is the lack of a detailed characterization of specific industrial sludges, specific complementary ingredients (manure, newspaper, vegetable residues etc.) and the possibility of generating sludge-specific worm strains. The fact that vermicomposting continues to be an active research topic suggests that real industrial application is more than just designing an appropriate unit. By focusing on a specific industrial sludge, VERMICOM hopes to develop a methodology which can be followed by other polluting industries to adapt the process to the specific composition of their sludge.
