Biosolids Management
  • Biosolids are a solid product from sewage treatment processes and have been treated in a way to make them safe for further use.


    The Biosolids Management Network's scope is to develop and promote increased research and technical information on biosolids so as to assist in achieving better acceptance of its reuse in the community.


    AWA members who are interested in solutions to the disposal and reuse of water and wastewater sludges particularly those from sewage treatment are encouraged to join the biosolids specialist network. In this network, your volunteer committee members work to improve the profile and understanding of biosolids in the community. More directly from the member viewpoint, they organize and deliver, with assistance from the AWA events managers, a highly successful biennial specialist conference where the latest research, technologies and developments in the management of biosolids are highlighted with keynote speakers of international prominence.

    AWA would like to encourage any member interested in biosolids - and especially its use, to join this network.


    Want to join the Biosolids Specialist Network?

    If you or a colleague would like to keep updated on the latest developments and events in Biosolids, then join us! To join this network you must be an AWA member.
