Depending on the treatment process and method, biosolids fertilizers may contain a distinctive odor. This odor comes from the sulphur and ammonia compound – both plant nutrients found in the biosolids material. However, when advanced biosolids treatment and land application technologies and approaches are used, the material tends to have an “earthy” aroma, there is very little odor and it dissipates quickly.
