Abstract: Waste treatment technologies such as subcritical and supercritical water oxidation processes offer innovative alternatives to vexing sludge and toxic wastewater treatment problems. This paper describes alternative approaches to evaluating new technologies for resolving sludge volume reduction and toxic waste disposal problems. Specific mention is made of a fullscale subcritical Sludge Processing Facility (SPF) located in Houston, Texas. Also, discussed is a new subcritical (S-SCWO) and supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) research facility at The University of Texas, Austin.
