Abstract: Today, the number of wastewater treatment plants is rapidly increasing. In parallel, there is also a large increase in the amount of sewage sludge. The sludge obtained should be disposed of in such a way as not to damage the environment. In order to be able to use the mud efficiently in areas such as agricultural fertilizers, land improvement, cement factories and additional fuel, a good drying bed is required to increase the dry matter rate by 80%. In this study solar in Turkey, thermal and wastewater that drying in the field starting from the effects provided by the environment of the sludge from wastewater treatment plants, the applicability of solar drying system and suggestions were made for the regions can be applied to this system.
