Abstract
This paper presents new experimental results regarding energy efficiency of the treatment in microwave field of the sludge from wastewater treatment plants. Research was based on comparing by drying in heat convection and drying by heating in the microwave field. Are presented the results of experiments, and the phenomena occurring in the two types of drying analyzed. The final results highlights the energy efficiency of drying in microwave field compared to convective drying.
