          Treatment and disposal of sewage sludge has become an economically and environmentally sensitive problem. This necessitates cost-effective and innovative solutions whilst responding to environmental regulation and public pressures. This study examines the characteristics of a typical sludge samples as received following standard analytical procedures and its suitability for power generation. The results of the analysis revealed that the sample has good proxanal and ultanal attributes. The higher heating value of the sample on dry basis was found to be 21.21 MJ/kg. These characteristics are similar to qualities of standard coal used as fuel in power stations.
