Peterborough, Ontario Proposes $13 Million Biosolids Plant

December 2014
Solid Waste Report;12/22/2014, Vol. 45 Issue 22, p6
The article reports that the city of Peterborough in Ontario is planning to invest 13 million U.S. dollars for a biosolids plant to treat the solid sewage coming into the city's wastewater treatment plant. Topics include the biosolids plant converting waste into pellets that could be sold as fertilizers, as well as the city paying 850,000 U.S. dollars to Lystek to haul the solid sewage. Also mentioned are the amount of waste produced in 2013, and 2 competing technology for the biosolids plant.
