So, What Happens to Those Biosolids, Anyway?
The National Biosolids Data Project keeps tabs on how biosolids are used and managed in the United States. They report that most biosolids are applied to soils, while others are landfilled or incinerated. Some are used to produce green energy. The project is in the midst of updating its survey to cover every state. We thought it would be interesting to share the high points of the 2018 survey from a few of the states we serve. The study is in the process of being updated to reflect 2020 data. See the National Biosolids Data website to learn more.
