What To Avoid When Dealing With Biosolids

Biosolids is a highly divisive topic in today’s society. While there is a large portion of the population that believes in the benefits of generating biosolids and using it as an organic fertilizer and even as a source of renewable energy, there is still a small portion of society that couldn’t wrap its head around […]

Advantages of Using Multi-Stage Anaerobic Digestion In Generating Biosolids

Generation biosolids through anaerobic digestion, whether through a single-stage or multi-stage process, is one of the most widely used technologies in the industry. The standard multi-stage process is composed of a two-stage acid/gas-phased system. In this process, the acid-forming steps (hydrolysis and volatile acid fermentation) are separated from the gas-forming step (methane formation). The first […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rehabilitating Land Through The Application of Biosolids

Once mining operations are complete, the sites will be left barren and all the nutrients of the topsoil would have been stripped off because of the activities. It will take decades for the mining sites to regain what they have lost through the mining activities but thanks to the use of biosolids, this could be […]

Separating Sewage Sludge From Biosolids In Fertilizer Use

Even with enough information available on the internet and from public journals and studies, the use of biosolids as fertilizer is still a hotly-debated topic among communities. Even in America, where the recycling and treatment of waste to produce biosolids is a largely accepted practice, many people still crinkle their noses when they think about […]

Rehabilitating Mining Sites Using Biosolids

When mining operations are complete, the change in topography and the stripping of vegetation can lead to a serious soil erosion. This will wash away precious nutrients and clog up waterways because of the run-off. Not to mention that it would also create an unsightly pile of dirt that can’t be used for anything. The […]
