Many pollution experts agree that the limiting operation in a modern sewage disposal plant is the disposal of the solids which accumulate as a result of various separation procedures. Of particular concern is the disposition of activated sludge which is the solids residue resulting from aerobic digestion of soluble or non-settleable solids in sewage. The paper describes the results of a research program in which techniques of hydrolysis and solubilization of meat scrap to the solubilization of activated sludge is described using SO2 as the hydrolytic agent.
