Disintegration is the mechanical disruption of the flock structure of sludge and the micro-organisms which the sludge consists of. The first conference on this new process step in sewage sludge treatment took place in March 1998 at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. 20 lecturers gave information about the opportunities and limits of this interesting technology. More than 120 specialists participated in the conference. Because the conference language was German this report will give a brief information about the content of the conference to all specialist who are interested in this technology.

If you have any more questions or remarks on the conference and all aspects of disintegration please contact Dr. Johannes Müller at the address listed at the end of the report.
