The wasted activated sludge dewaterability represents a major concernfor Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) managers. Indeed, whereas thedewatered sludge could represents a re-usable matrix, the principal drawbackrelated to the wasted sludge dewaterability is the high water content due to thepresence of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) that allow the trapping ofwater molecules within the bio sludge flocs. In order to provide an outlook ofthe dewaterability features of activated sludge derived from advanced WWTP,the present research reports a long term survey (over two years) aimed atassessing the principal dewaterability parameters of the sludge wasted fromdifferent Membrane BioReactor pilot plants.
