Advantages of Using Biosolids as Agriculture Fertilizer

Wastewater, when it undergoes appropriate treatment, can be recycled into biosolids as agriculture fertilizer to improve and maintain productive soils and stimulate plant growth. Farmers and gardeners have been using biosolids for ages. The controlled land application of biosolids completes a natural cycle in the environment. In addition, by treating sewage sludge, it prevents organic…

Factors that Affect the Development of Activated Sludge in Wastewater Treatment

The presence of bacteria is vital for the wastewater treatment process. In an ideal wastewater treatment plant system, bacteria (about 95%) along with a small portion of fungi and protozoa should form a biological floc that is known as an activated sludge. This is essential for the degradation of organic substances in wastewater. The activated…

How to Find the Best Compost for Improving Turf

Although there are several ways to revitalize nutrient deficient soils into producing turf, one of the cheapest and more effective solutions comes from using compost as a soil amendment. Different varieties of soil types could benefit from using these biosolids. Clay soils, for example, can have improved structure with reduced surface crusting and compaction as…

Benefits of Thermal Hydrolysis in Producing High Quality Biosolids and Biogas Production

The primary objective of wastewater treatment is to process domestic sludge before recycling it into productive materials such as fertilizers or feeding it back into the water system. Based on the wastewater quality, biosolids are classified into Class A and Class B. Class A is a type of sterilized sludge that is used for land…
