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 […]

What Should We Do With Our Biosolids?

In developed countries, the governments have found a way to turn human, domestic, and municipal waste into biosolids, a treated sewage sludge that can be applied on agricultural land, farms, ranches, mining sites, and forestlands. Heck, even home gardens use biosolids now because it is a nutrient-rich organic soil that comes for free in many […]

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 […]
