An alarming 70% of these wastewater flows untreated into the river and sea.

Urban or industrial wastewater treatement produces sludge. This sludge is then treated with a view to being recovered or destroyed. A number of treatment phases, from thickening to drying, allow the sludge to be recovered, for example as agricultural fertiliser or fuel for incineration plants.
