With growing public interest and regulatory changes, municipalities or large agricultural operations that generate biosolids continue to face new technical and financial challenges on how to dispose of this waste. Lystek International’s biosolids management process seeks to solve this problem by collecting this waste and using it to creating a safe, high quality liquid fertilizer through an innovative and patented process.
For some people, the mere mention of the word ‘biosolids’ is enough to make them swallow hard and try to quickly change the subject. For others, however, discussion about the responsible treatment and use of biosolids and their potential role in today’s society is extremely important and anything but hard to stomach.
Lystek specializes in the recovery of organic materials. More specifically, Lystek offers a unique, patented process for the management and beneficial use of biosolids.
What Is Biosolids Management?
Biosolids refers to the residual, semi-solid, organic material primarily derived from municipal and/or commercial wastewater treatment processes. These nutrient rich materials are eventually used in agricultural applications, sent to landfills or incinerated.
