Although they may appear crude on the surface, biosolids represent the future of wastewater treatment. This organic substance contains energy and nutrients, and thus the potential for resource recovery and increased energy efficiency by wastewater treatment operations.

To get a better handle on biosolids, Water Online spoke with KLa Systems. We covered the difference between biosolids classes, a special aerobic digestion process, and how treatment facilities can make the most of their waste.
