Formatted Abstract/Summary The Oxley Creek Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) centralised biosolids handling facility
has now been operating for four years since commissioning in late 2006, though it
has been decommissioned since the Jan 2011 floods.
During this time the system has been able to consistently treat both native and
imported material. In terms of performance, volatile solids (VS) destruction has averaged 45% against a target of 50%, whilst dewatered cake has achieved 27% solids, against a target of 30%. While there has been a significant amount of operational downtime (27% over 4 years) a large proportion of this was related to maintenance or repair of ancillary equipment. Despite the downtime, the system has contributed significantly to reducing sludge transport volumes and costs, providing an overall reduction in sludge trucking and disposal costs of 28% relative to trucking undigested belt filter press cake.
