3 Environmentally Sound Biosolids Distribution Sites

Biosolids management is a tough conversation to have because of the critical component of the treatment process. Since waste management was a major problem for US states in the last decades, finding out that these could solve the distribution and application of treated sewage sludge was a golden opportunity for the federal government and its […]

4 Factors That Affect The Odor Control of Biosolids

Decisions regarding odor control in the generation of biosolids range from intensified and higher degree of treatment at the wastewater treatment plant to managing the odors at the off-site storage locations. The key consideration is making sure that when the biosolids leave the treatment plants, the odor has been reduced and minimized. It is more […]

Top Tips For Transporting Biosolids To A Storage Facility

Storing biosolids is easy if the generating facility is big enough to accommodate even the surplus in materials. When biosolids are generated, the exact amount cannot be measured and it’s hard to quantify how many sacks or pounds of biosolids will be produced because of the process involved in the treatment. When the sewage sludge, […]

Biosolids Management Points For Facility Storage

Aside from the successful generation of biosolids in facilities and plants, there should also be provisions for the daily amount of biosolids that are being produced and cannot be land applied immediately. The storage of the biosolids is a critical component of understanding the benefits of biosolids for the environment, as well as general public […]

The Biosolids Process of Dewatering And Drying

The regulations governing biosolids process are so strict that treatment plants have to regularly study the processes they use in order to get the necessary permits and licenses from governing authorities. But these rules and regulations are essential to assure that the treated sewage sludge can be applied on land used for food production. The […]

The Role of Biosolids In Renewable Energy

Before the treatment of biosolids was discovered, Americans have been throwing out their waste into rivers, streams, and lakes. Eventually, scientists developed the process of landfilling and incinerating. For a time, these practices were okay, too, since it reduced the exposure of communities to harmful municipal waste such as human feces and things that we […]

Raising Awareness For The Benefits of Biosolids

Communities and neighborhoods all across America are finding it hard to accept the use of biosolids with open arms. Though they are not necessarily opposed to treating sewage sludge and transforming them into this form of nutrient-rich organic fertilizer, treatment plants have a great responsibility to raise awareness through information dissemination. Educating communities is one […]

Looking For The Right Type of Biosolids For Your Land

Biosolids are nutrient-rich fertilizer that is high in organic matter and micro-nutrients that are essential for plant growth. They are ideally used in agribusiness, land reclamation, manufacturing topsoil, forest improvement, and public works projects. In agricultural lands, farmers use a nutrient management plan, the same one they use when using manure or other types of […]
