Abstract : The dewatering process for the recovery and reuse of bottom sediments and water blooms has been developed over the past several years by the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Science University of Tokyo. This paper describes how to introduce and apply the continuous vacuum precoat filter and how this filter relates to environmental conservation of lakes and ports. The experimental results with fundamental apparatus and pilot plants are described, as well as aspects of the bottom sediments and water blooms used in both wet and dry forms.
