Lystek customers enjoy complete, end-to-end biosolids and organics management solutions. Wondering how and why this works so well? Well, the multi-purpose, turn-key Lystek Thermal Hydrolysis system is specifically designed to not only harness and maximize the value of biosolids and organics, but to enhance what you already have in place at your WWTP, making it work better.

Lystek Thermal Hydrolysis is a simple, low cost, low maintenance system with a remarkably small footprint that works within your existing treatment plant environment to maximize both operational efficiencies and often under-utilized infrastructure. That’s what our customers love and appreciate; that, and the fact that the system is extremely easy to operate and it functions reliably and independently, without interference to existing systems. Basically, our customers only notice the benefits of the innovation – and the great…

Attention: Environmental, agricultural & municipal business reporters/editors

April 22, 2016 | Cambridge ON | For Immediate Release | On this Earth Day, let us reflect on the importance of recycling naturally occurring resources and explore innovative ideas for the conservation of a healthy, shared environment. Biosolids and organics and the careful management of these valuable resources warrant a closer look.

Historically, biosolids and many organic food “wastes” have been ignored, buried in landfills and/or brushed aside as pesky material, with little to no value. We are proud to be part of a group of dedicated scientists, researchers, engineers and other industry professionals, all of whom are firmly committed to changing this way of thinking.

Here are eight (8) ways that biosolids and organics can contribute to a healthier environment when advanced treatment technologies are utilized and best…

As the world population grows, the demand for food on a global scale also continues to increase annually. As a result, the pressure on agriculture to increase yields through innovation, improved practices and new efficiencies is constant. As the agricultural industry innovates and improves to meet world food demands, yield increases are realized. As a result, increasing fertilizer inputs are required to facilitate improved yields.

For some nutrients, like Phosphorus (an essential element for all living organisms), which is mined as phosphate-bearing rock in several countries (China, Morocco, the US, South Africa and Jordon control 90% of the world reserves), supply is also a factor in fertilizer prices in both the short and longer term. The Global Phosphorus Research Initiative estimates that within 30 to 40 years Phosphorus supplies will not be able to meet…

March 10, 2016| Cambridge ON | For Immediate Release | Canadian biofertilizer producer Lystek International is excited to release a first round of in-depth, third-party, field data derived from crop trials completed during the 2015 growing year in Ontario’s agricultural heartland.

The Cambridge-based firm is quickly establishing itself as a market leader in the low temperature, low cost Thermal Hydrolysis space. This is being achieved by demonstrating how advanced technology based in sound science and research can not only help reduce the volumes and GHG’s that can be associated with biosolids and organics management, but also how these amazing resources can be safely diverted from landfills (or other, less beneficial uses) and converted into biogas for green energy, an alternative carbon source for BNR systems and a highly effective, pathogen free “Class A quality” biofertilizer…

In June 2015, the City of North Battleford, Saskatchewan was recognized with a national Environmental Award by the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) for conversion of its traditional wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and historical practice of landfilling biosolids into a an advanced and sustainable, Wastewater Resource Centre (WRRC). This was accomplished by being the first municipality in Western Canada to implement Lystek’s proven solutions for biosolids management. The City can also now claim that it is the first community in Western Canada to receive a federal registration from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for the pathogen free, LysteGro™ biofertilizer product now being produced at its WRRC. This is the sixth Lystek-enabled, thermal hydrolysis facility to receive this important distinction.

In the February edition of Treatment Plan Operator (TPO) the Cover Story delves into…

For years, North Battleford dewatered its biosolids and trucked the cake to the local landfill. The process was costly, created odor complaints, and was a waste of a potentially valuable resource.

Today, the city’s new low-cost, low-temperature thermal hydrolysis process is converting biosolids into a nutrient-rich, federally registered fertilizer, and establishing them as environmental leaders.

Read the latest cover story from leading industry publisher, Treatment Plant Operator (TPO) to learn more about the City’s results including:

• How a National Environment Award was won
• How a Class ‘A’ biofertilizer is being created
• How they saved money & are now able to generate revenue with the new product
• How the solution was easily retrofitted into the plant’s existing infrastructure
• How simple it is to operate & maintain

Recently the City of Montreal made international headlines when it announced controversial plans to dump eight billion litres of untreated sewage sludge into the St. Lawrence River so that it could repair a 30km long sewer pipe.

Objections to this decision were largely focused on the environmental and health impacts, which the City maintained would be “negligible.” While these are important concerns, many lost sight of a potentially more important story that goes to the heart of sustainability:

  • A potentially valuable resource was simply going to waste.

Unfortunately this isn’t an isolated case. Many major Canadian Cities continue to dump their raw sewage into waterways. Picturesque Victoria is a case in point. 129 million litres of untreated waste is piped directly into the marine waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca every day. The Pacific Ocean…
