Abstract:During the past year, several very significant issues have emerged that could have an impact on all biosolids management options available to municipal generators. In essence, the beneficial recycling of biosolids (includes Class B, Class A and Exceptional Quality (EQ) biosolids) could be affected depending upon how these issues are resolved. It will be shown that there are at least half a dozen major issues that will determine the future of beneficial biosolids recycling in the United States.
These issues are already having negative impacts on beneficial biosolids recycling programs across the country. More importantly, they have the potential to either severely restrict or prevent the beneficial recycling of biosolids and biosolids-derived products in the United States. This paper provides an overview of the current situation and discusses the potential impacts and future ramifications for biosolids.
