Online-Seminar on Sludge Management Concepts in Albania

On 22 December 2020, AHT with support from its consortium partners Dorsch International Consultants GmbH and Ingenuity Consulting Engineers (ICE) delivered a online-seminar on Sludge Management Concepts in Albania. The online-seminar was delivered in the context of the project “EU Support to Waste Water Management and Treatment Services (EUSWAM),” and presented an approach for sludge management, relevant legal framework (with focus on the national DCM 127/2015 and EU Sewage Sludge Directive 86/278/EEC) alongside the corresponding national institutional framework. The online-seminar also presented an overview of current sludge production and management practices in six wastewater treatment plants in coastal areas of Albania, whilst indicating the sludge management outlets which could be considered for sludge reuse, alongside underlining some pre-requisites for pursuing these outlets. The EUSWAM project is co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
