Our solutions for biosolids & residuals management
With an increasing demand for urban sustainability and resource efficiency, cities are investing in comprehensive biosolids and residuals programs to extract maximum value from sludge, produce agriculturally beneficial byproducts, offset operational costs, and generate energy from biogas. These programs involve complex planning and require extensive knowledge of wastewater treatment, sludge concentration processes, thermal processes, product marketing and distribution, land application, and energy recovery.
- Biosolids go through treatments of thickening, dewatering, hydrolysis and/or digestion in order to reduce the sludge water content for further processing.
- After the concentration process, biosolids are dried or incinerated for disposal or recovery. Treated biosolids and residuals can be reused as fertilizer and landscaping or in energy recovery processes.
Experts across the biosolids value chain
Our employees are experts in managing the full sludge value chain, including the services and technologies used throughout the treatment, recovery, distribution, and disposal processes. Through a deep understanding of the entire management cycle, we offer biosolids partnerships that range from consulting and management of capital projects to O&M and full DBOM/F contracts.
Customized distribution programs
We develop, implement, and manage Class A solutions for the usage of processed biosolids, including marketing, sales, and distribution of EQ/Class A compost, dried pellets, and fertilizer to beneficial end users. 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.
Performance enhancing technologies
We have a portfolio of comprehensive and innovative technologies that span the full sludge treatment, recovery, and disposal cycles. We focus on minimizing sludge generation, enhancing system efficiency, optimizing energy performance, and maximizing beneficial reuse with commercially proven technologies, such as alkaline stabilization, enclosed composting, and thermal drying solutions.
