This thesis presented the dewatering performance improvement of anaerobically digested sludge with novel application and assessment of conditioning aids. The effectiveness of sludge conditioning was evaluated by batch experiments using a series of 250-mL jar test beakers. The optimal dosage was found at 15–20 g/kg chitosan with enhanced dewaterability and rheological behaviour. The dual-chemical conditioning results indicate a higher rate of water removal at the expense of dry solids content compared to single conditioning.
