Biosolid use is a proven approach that benefits land rejuvenation across BC, Canada, and around the world, as an effective and beneficial method to dispose of materials.
Processing and spreading biosolids on land has less impact than disposing of materials through incineration, which creates emissions and landfill, which takes up space for other refuse.
Other countries, including the US and Europe, as well as Canadian provinces including Nova Scotia, Alberta and BC are actively and successfully using biosolids for land and soil rejuvenation.
Globally, there is a noted shortage of nutrients in soils and on land due to heavy land use. Biosolids can replenish beneficial nutrients including phosphorus which help ecosystems that rely on soil, thrive.
