By Business Wire News


Today, Therma-Flite, a resource recovery technology company, launched the Modular Biosolids Drying System, MBD that, based on the company’s proven BIO-SCRU technology, is a turnkey solution for drying sludge to produce Class A biosolids. The new system is the first of its kind creating a new category in the industry due to its portability, which allows the system to be relocated more easily than the more permanent systems currently on the market.

“There are thousands of customers, municipalities, environmental services and engineering firms who want to do the right thing for the environment by moving to the production of Class A biosolids and keeping sludge out of the landfills,” said VP and biosolids management expert, Peter Commerford. “They want access to a system that, quite frankly, was more affordable, smaller and portable than what was available on the market. Therma-Flite is a leader in this biosolids drying space and we innovated the MBD, or what we’ve nicknamed ‘The SludgeBox’ to help remove the barriers these mid-sized city leaders were facing in transitioning to a Class A biosolids program.”

The ‘SludgeBox’ is designed as an easy-to-deploy total turnkey solution. It is containerized for intermodal transportation, factory assembled and pre-tested, and arrives onsite pre-piped, pre-wired and deployable within a matter of weeks. Service program options are available on the new sludge drying system for municipalities who prefer to outsource the operation of their biosolids management program.
