Abstract

Sludge are known as waste material or dewatered solid from a commercial or industrial wastewater treatment plant and potable water treatment plants. It consists of clay, microorganisms and chemical generated from the use of coagulant material. The study of sludge is based on municipal treatment plant served by IWK Sdn Bhd. The objectives of the study are to observe the characteristic of the sludge and evaluate its potential for recycle or reused. The characteristic observed is physical properties and chemical properties. In order to meet these objectives the several test were done in the laboratory material such as sieve analysis, pH value test, moisture content, classification to soil engineering and heavy metal test. The result from this study indicates that the sludge is classified as sandy silt according to soil engineering. The behavior of sandy silt are obtain and used as guide data in recycle or reused of this sludge. Meanwhile, three elements were carryout from chemical test. There are Lead Pb, Copper Cu and Zink Zn. The result show those element are below limit that can harm the environment. Beside that this low content element may be advantage while recycle or recompose with this sludge. For example, this sewage sludge can use as raw material to produce lightweight aggregate, absorber for fixbed, and ceramic manufacture.
