New WEF Publication - Advancing Resource Recovery from Biosolids
(NEW YORK, NY – August 15, 2013) – Hazen and Sawyer’s Wendell Khunjar and Ron Latimer are among the authors of a new Water Environment Federation (WEF) publication titled Enabling the Future: Advancing Resource Recovery from Biosolids.
Over the past several years, there has been a paradigm shift in how wastewater solids are perceived, and today, biosolids are viewed as a renewable resource too valuable to waste. This perception reflects the widespread interest in sustainability, energy, climate change, resource depletion, materials cycling, and zero-waste goals.
This publication examines the unprecedented opportunities that now exist and are emerging for the organics, energy, and nutrients in biosolids. Lessons learned and documented experiences have also been captured in this publication as part of an effort to provide practical guidance for utilities embarking on the road to resource recovery.
