Collective Biosolids Strategy

More than 320,000 tonnes of wastewater treatment plant solids are produced every year in New Zealand, and there’s more accumulated in ponds that need desludging.

Lowe Environmental Impact (LEI), The Centre for Integrated Biowaste Research (led by ESR), and local government are working together to develop a collective biosolids management strategy in the lower North Island. The strategy developed will identify and test options for discharge and beneficial use of biosolids, resulting in a toolbox of scenarios that will reduce the cost of sludge management, and increase the certainty and viability of solutions put in place.
