Abstract [en]

In earlier studies sludge incineration ash and SCWO-residues have been leached with acid andbase. Acid leaching gives a high degree of recovery but releases besides phosphate also the mainpart of other metals (including heavy metals). Leaching with base (NaOH) gives a less dissolutionof metals however with lower degree of recovery (up to about 50 %). When leaching with base,the calcium content in the sludge probably binds phosphorus as calcium phosphate.In this study a two-step leaching process has been tested. Ash and SCWO-residues are in the firststep leached with acid, with the main purpose to dissolve calcium. After leaching experiments withhydrochloric acid and acetic acid at different pH-levels from 3 to 6 leaching with acetic acid at pHlevel4 was chosen as the first leaching step. With a weak acid the dissolution reaction can occur atthe desired pH-level without limitation caused by insufficient amount of acid. In the secondleaching step the solid products was leached with 1 M sodium hydroxide. Two-step leaching gavefor SCWO-residue 23% higher leaching of phosphate and for sludge incineration ash 11 % higherleaching. However, aluminium was also dissolved in the second leaching step, and has to beseparated from the phosphate in a third process step.
