The City of North Battleford, Saskatchewan, announced on January 16 the commission of a biosolids management project incorporating technology developed by Lystek International Inc., a residuals management firm based in Cambridge, Ontario.

The project, which moved forward after the city was mandated by Saskatchewan’s Water Security Agency to have a new biosolids management solution in place by November 2015, was commissioned on budget and ahead of schedule. Lystek’s technology will allow biosolids to be converted into a commercial fertilizer.

The city’s director of operations Stewart Schafer said converting biosolids into a fertilizer high in organic matter is a win-win for both the city and local farmers, and that “wastewater treatment plant biosolids should be considered a resource and not a liability.”
