Recent concerns with the practice of land application of Class B biosolids have created more interest in thermal processing and production of Class A biosolids. Thermal processes are those that use heat or elevated temperature to further process the solids generated at a wastewater
treatment plant (WWTP) to produce (1) Class A biosolids, (2) energy (bioenergy) or fuel (biofuel), (3) a pathogen-free product, and/or (4) a reduction in the volume of product for beneficial use or disposal.
