ABSTRACT
About 80% of Romanian cities have a combined sewerage system (domestic wastewater and rainwater). Industrial discharging have also an important share in the final outcome of WWAT, consequently, the discharge of industrial wastewater might significantly influence the mud quality. The main options for mud management include: agricultural administration, incineration or co-incineration, waste deposit discharging, forest or degraded land administration. In Romania, the mud is currently stored in WWAT (91%), discharged to waste deposits (9%) or used in agriculture (0,2%). The incineration is not used since Romania doesn’t have operating incinerators for solid waste and mud. The mud production is a continuous process which implies finding flexible and safe discharging solutions. The mud use in agriculture or its recycling for energy recovery are forbidden for waste deposits, so the alternative options, such as the use on forest or degraded land administration, become important.
