What are Biosolids?
Biosolids are the primarily organic material produced during municipal waste water treatment that can be beneficially utilized.
The interest in biosolids resulted from the "green movement" of the 1960's. Prior to that time raw sewage was dumped into our waterways.
Today, many wastewater treatment plants turn sludge into safe, quality-controlled product called known as biosolids. This product can be used as a fertilizer since the nutrients in biosolids are in organic form and are released slowly as the crops need them.
In some instances, it can also be used as a fuel.
