Paper Title:
Development of Porous Materials Using Sewage Sludge by Molten-Salt Method

This study is about the development of porous material which shapes Ø3~8mm bead with sewage sludge by molten-salt method. The development of porous material was conducted by 2 different processes. One is made by molding sewage sludge into beads with pelletizer and then coating the beads with molten-salt and lastly sintered at 1050°C, and the other is mixing sewage sludge with molten-salt which is using synthesized zeolite, and then molding the mixture into beads with pelletizer. The molded mixture is finally sintered at 1050°C. We evaluated the value of developed material as sorbent and artificial soil for tree-planning by analyzing surface area, distribution of pore size, and cation exchange capacity(CEC). According to the results, surface coated porous material have 92.8m2/g of surface area and CEC 98.9meq/100g and the mixture sewage sludge with molten-salt have 104.1m2/g of surface area and CEC 140.8meq/100g. Thus, developed porous material can be applied to various uses as sorbent and artificial soil.
