City of Kelowna biosolids recycling facility : operations, quality controls and marketing Light, Gordon J.

Abstract

Associated Engineering in combination with E&A Environmental Consultants combined to design a cost effective biosolids recycling facility for the City of Kelowna utilizing the Aerated Static Pile composting method. The biosolids recycling facility produces a Retail High Grade Compost as designated by the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks under the Guidelines for the Disposal of Domestic Sludge, "Waste Management Act". This presentation will show the process and equipment used to convert dewatered biosolids into a high quality soil amendment. In addition, there will be an outline of our marketing success to date for the sale of our compost products under the trade name "OGOGROW".
