Biosolids are the by-product of treated, stabilized and disinfected water that may have originated from household wastewater, industrial wastewater or stormwater runoff.
A commitment to environmental sustainability includes the desire to capture and reuse all the natural and human wastes generated at a site - including suspended solids and sludge product from the treatment of wastewater and stormwater effluent.
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.
Beneficial use of biosolids involves implementing and maintaining quality control processes and public health & safety measures. Biosolids are used for many tasks from use as fertilizers for household lawns to alternative energy to supplement the public power grid. Traditionally the spectrum of use options are based on budget, volumes produced, consistency of the waste stream, environmental and social imperatives. The options range from those undertaken on-site where the biosolids are produced or treated, to those off-site involving management of a treated stabilised product.
AWA would like to encourage any member interested in biosolids - and especially its use, to join this network.
