  • Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel
    Automated Solar Sludge Drying Frees Up Personnel

    Solar dryers are fully automated to feed, move, and discharge biosolids cost-effectively. Even climate changes throughout the year are easily monitored and controlled to produce optimal output. Installation is very flexible with options to add components at a later date. Full automation means employees seldom need to enter the greenhouse and are free to use their time elsewhere.

  • A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility
    A Sunny Outlook For Tooele City Water Reclamation Facility

    The City of Tooele, UT was looking to update their Bio-Solids program and move away from a limiting Class B product. They needed to produce a more flexible reusable material. The City found the Huber Technology SOLSTICE® to be the perfect solution and was pleased to discover the technology to be simple to maintain as well as provide a cost-effective operation. Find out how the dryer raised the quality of the bio-product to Class A.
