to farmland as a fertilizer under the brand name Nutribio.
com)-- Synagro, the preeminent provider of biosolids
and residuals solutions services in the United States since 1986, is pleased to participate in The American Water Summit (AWS) 2017 in Austin, Texas, November 29 to 30, 2017.
The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), Texas A&M University at Qatar (Tamuq) and the Qatar Shell Research and Technology Centre (QSRTC) have signed three-year research and development (R&D) agreements exploring the use of Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) biosolids
, for the production of fodder crops at the ministry's experimental farm in Rawdat Al Faras.
The application of biosolids
to agricultural land offers the potential for safe disposal of biosolids
while realising the value of plant available nutrients.
Senior science advisor John Werring of the David Suzuki Foundation conducted tests in July that showed high levels of contamination--higher than the BC Contaminated Sites Regulations--where biosolids

Sudbury has been recognized by the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) for its biosolids
About 54,000 gallons of treated sewage overflowed into a drainage ditch at the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission biosolids
treatment facility north of Eugene, off Awbrey Lane.
But unlike most farmland, these fields are fertilized with biosolids
produced by the city's wastewater treatment process.
have been processed to kill pathogens, and EPA strictly regulates biosolid
use to ensure the materials don't harm the environment, human health, or animal health.
Eventually, though, those microorganisms multiply and have to be removed from the wastewater stream and that creates biosolids
Scientists at the CRC for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment are using the Australian Synchrotron to develop a way of turning biosolids
from urban sewage into a safe nutrient source for farm soils.
