Sewage treatment plants (STP’s) throughout Malaysia are facing escalating issues on sewage disposable and environmental impact. Investigation on the sewage sludge for possible fuel formulation as renewable energy is being considered. The characterization of waste sludge on its volatility, High Heating Value and Energy output value will provide a preliminary finding for usage as potential biomass fuel. Co-combustion of sewage sludge and coal provide another formulation for potential biomass fuel depend on its technical viability and economical input.
