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.
