- Improved Agricultural Output: Growing global food demands have put a huge strain on today’s ecosystems- driving unsustainable farming practices across various continents. Biosolids have been used to fertilize a variety of crops including feed corn, wheat, soybeans, hay and pasture. Agricultural use of biosolids, that meet strict quality criteria and application rates, has been shown to produce significant improvements in crop growth and yield. Nutrients found in biosolids, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and trace elements such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, sulfur and zinc, are necessary for crop production and growth.
- Soil Improvement: The use of biosolids helps replenish organic matter which has been depleted over time. This same organic matter also helps promote aeration, improve the structure of soil and its ability to store moisture.
- Waste diversion from landfills: Over 10 million dry…
