The challenge

Treating wastewater comes with its set of challenges, particularly when the focus is on sustainable treatment solutions of the wastewater sludge. Huber Technology tackled these issues by building a greenhouse dedicated to solar drying of wastewater sludge. Sustainable energy supply via the sun makes it possible to reduce CO2 footprint and cost reduction.

Commercial Greenhouse project summary

Completed in less than a year, Gakon Netafim developed a state-of-the-art greenhouse facility. Designed to optimize every aspect of sludge drying. The aim is to create an eco-friendly approach to minimize wastewater sludge and recover nutrients. This method not only reduces sludge but also provides an economical way to either dispose of it or use it as a soil enhancer.   

With our greenhouse, Huber SE is realizing an environmentally friendly solution for sludge reduction - for a simple and long-term operation, less traffic for trucks, and less disposal costs.
