Sustainable development is a necessity in the present era. The essence of this form of development is a stable relationship between human activities and the natural world, which does not diminish the prospects for future generations to enjoy a quality of life at least as good as our own. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle approach, and maximum resource utilization is one of the few steps for sustainable development. Sludge dewatering is one of the keys steps for sustainable development.

Sludge dewatering system separates sludge into liquid and solid components for waste minimization. It is important to note that dewatering is not intended to treat the sludge or liquid, it only separates the solid and liquid components so that it is easier and more cost-effective to handle the separate phases for final disposal. Once the sludge has been dewatered, both the solid and liquid components may contaminate that will need to be treated separately. The purpose of sludge dewatering is for waste minimization and to achieve overall cost efficiency for disposal.

Additionally, it can also help with a company’s sustainability objectives. Generally, both the public and private sectors are required to dispose of sludge in a manner that is approved by regulatory agencies and are in line with their own organizational requirements and environmentally safe. Sludge dewatering is typically focused on reducing the weight and volume of the sludge so that disposal costs - including transportation - are kept to a minimum. Water removal is the primary means of volume reduction before sludge waste can be treated or disposed of in the most economical manner.

On the operating/design principles, sludge dewatering is segmented into vacuum filters, filter presses, drying beds, sludge lagoons, gravity/low pressure, and centrifuge. Considerations for design and operations of the equipment include cake dryness, solid recovery, process/drying time, operating cost, capital cost, and chemical/flocculent. Vacuum filters have swift process time while sludge lagoons have the slowest process time.

Vacuum filters have biggest both operating cost and capital cost. Sludge has no operating cost. On the basis of application, the sludge dewatering system is segmented in municipal and industrial. Sludge dewatering systems are used to process the municipal solid waste. Industrial sectors like chemical, mining, paper & mills use sludge dewatering to process waste.

The major market driver for the global sludge dewatering system market is the regulatory shift towards sustainable development. All cities are opting to dispose of the municipal waste in an efficient way. Increase in use of modern municipal waste processing system boosts the demand for sludge dewatering market. Processing of industrial slurry and sludge requires the use of sludge dewatering equipment. Strict implementation of environmental laws and regulations spurs the global sludge dewatering market

The key market restraint for the global sludge dewatering system market is the high cost of installation and operating cost of sludge dewatering market equipment. Developing nations and small scale industries cannot afford the sludge dewatering equipment. There is a lack of awareness regarding the importance of sludge dewatering for sustainable development goals of U.N.

Regional Analysis

Global sludge dewatering system market is dominated by Europe and North America. The primary reason for the dominance of North America and Europe is stable economic foundations and increased awareness regarding sustainable development goals. Aging municipal handling system and up-gradation of infrastructure will drive the product demand in the near future in the European and North American regions. Decrease in per capita water availability and initiatives to reuse and recycle wastewater is expected to boost worldwide demand for sludge dewatering system. Frugal solutions of wastewater handling system will positively influence the growth of a sludge dewatering system. Demand for frugal waste management solutions will increase the research and development and can result in innovative development for sludge dewatering equipment. A decrease in the availability of barren land for municipal waste disposal in metropolitan areas is expected to spur demand for efficient.
