Experimental Study on the Solidification/Stabilization of Textile Dyeing Sludge
Sludge from the textile dyeing industries was solidified and stabilized using cement, fly ash（PFA）and cinder as the solidifying agents, and the optimum conditions of sludge solidification/stabilization were analyzed. The mechanical property of solidified sludge block was evaluated by compressive strength test, at the same time， the chemical oxygen demand (COD） and heavy metal concentration of the leaching from the cured block were tested as well. With the dosage of cement, PFA and cinder, 0.15kg/kg, 0.02kg/kg and 0.08kg/kg respectively, and curing time was 6ds, the compressive strength of the solidified sludge block reached 330kPa.Results showed that addition of cement and cinder had good effects on the compressed strength of sludge block, cement, PFA and cinder enhanced the solidification and stabilization of organic and heavy metal in the sludge. Under the above conditions, COD of the leaching from the sludge solidification block was 488mg/L, and the heavy metal concentrations had reached the related national standards. After 6ds of curing time, water ratio of the solidified block was maintained at 40%~45%, which met the prescribed standards of landfill.
