Consequences of Controls on Organic Chemicals in Sludge
The study has examined the risks, options and costs to the UK water industry associated with sewage sludge non-compliance against organic chemical limits proposed for inclusion in furure revisions to the 1986 EU Sludge Directive (86/27/EEC). Using the limited data available, source assessments and fate modelling have highlighted di(2-ethyhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) as being the compound of primary concern with respect to compliance risk. Thermal destruction and composting have been identified as the primary treatment options to mitigate the risks of non-compliance across all compounds. The need for further investigations (including monitoring) to establish with greater certainty the current risks has been included as one of the study's recommendations.
