Sanitary and hygienic estimation of the impact of emissions of sludge incineration plants on the public health in St. Petersburg


The safety of the technologies applied for the disposal of wastewater sludge, in particular, the incineration technology, is confirmed by the results of emission control; it is an extremely important issue in the relationship between the water utilities responsible for this process and population served. The lack of available public data and information on the measures taken to ensure environmental protection and public health in the implementation and operation of sludge incineration technology does not provide for the population estimating to the full extent the current situation in such an important area of the urban economy. Explanations of approaches to sludge disposal and emission control in St. Petersburg are given on the basis of the actual document supported studies.
