Biosolids & Residuals Management

Biosolids & Residuals Management

EXPERTISE AND LEADERSHIP IN BIOSOLIDS AND RESIDUALS MANAGEMENT

Veolia’s proven track record for biosolids management at wastewater and biosolids facilities is a direct result of our commitment to full regulatory compliance, focused asset management and proactive community relations. Our team of dedicated experts has developed best practices for a full range of services, including design, construction and operation, marketing and environmental compliance, as well as for technical approaches ranging from incineration to thermal-drying technologies.

LAND APPLICATION

We manage application programs that incorporate thousands of dry tons of biosolids into agricultural lands. Services can also include site acquisition, permitting, soil sampling and environmental reporting.

PRODUCT MARKETING AND DISTRIBUTION

We develop, implement and manage Class A solutions for beneficial usage of processed biosolids, including sales and distribution of EQ/Class A compost, dried pellets and fertilizer to beneficial end users.

LEADING-EDGE TECHNOLOGIES

To produce a beneficial agricultural product, we leverage our extensive experience with commercially proven technologies, such as alkaline stabilization, enclosed composting and thermal drying solutions.

FEATURED PROJECT

Baltimore-Washington, D.C.
Our team operates the Baltimore City Composting Facility, one of the most successful biosolids composting operations in the country. Amounting to more than 85,000 tons, the EQ Class A compost meets the highest standards and is used on several high-profile lawns, including the White House.

PRODUCT STANDARDS

Product Standards
 
Biosolids are typically classified into one of three categories, based on treatment methods and constituents, to ensure public safety and regulatory compliance.
  • EQ - Class A biosolids that also comply with one of the 40 CFR 503 options to meet metals limits.
  • Class A - Wastewater residuals that typically are treated by a Process to Further Reduce Pathogens (PFRP), such as composting, pasteurization, drying, heat treatment or advanced alkaline treatment.
  • Class B - Wastewater residuals that are typically treated using Process to Significantly Reduce Pathogens (PSRP), such as aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion, air drying and lime stabilization.
