Biosolid or Sludge is a by-product of the wastewater treatment process. Once wastewater reaches a treatment plant, the effluent goes through a number of physical, chemical and biological processes to clean the wastewater and remove the wastewater solids. The solids are then collected and further treated or stabilized to reduce volume, odors and control pathogens and other organisms capable of transporting disease.
The treatment process a wastewater facility employs to stabilize the wastewater solids will result in either Class A or Class B biosolids, depending on the methods used. Upon completion of the stabilization process, the material, either in a solid, semi-solid or liquid state, can be referred to as biosolids ready for application as a fertilizer or soil conditioners.
HYCOR UTILITIES offers a range of biosolids stabilization processes:
HYCOR can run pilot treatment systems and analytical testing to document the effectiveness of treatment and stabilization prior to installation of a full scale system. HYCOR also offers complete after sales service on all of our equipment, as well as equipment which may have been provided by other manufacturers.
