The CROWN™-disintegration system decomposes and breaks down the microorganisms to be found in the sludge, which agglomerate to form sludge flakes of several millimetres in size. In some cases the process also destroys the cell walls of the micro organisms so that they release their cell content (nutrients and enzymes) into the liquid. As a result, there are more dissolved oxidable compounds and organic carbons in the sludge.
