Determining the Feasibility of Land Application for Non-Hazardous Sludges
Burch Hydro can help evaluate and determine the feasibility for land application of any non-hazardous by-product. Similar to biosolids, several factors must be considered in such an evaluation:
Sampling and laboratory analysis of the material is necessary to determine and/or confirm its composition.
Consultation with the EPA and/or other regulatory agencies is required to obtain authorization to land apply any particular by-product. Composing and submitting a Sludge Management Plan and application site permitting are often necessary steps included this process.
Agronomic Benefit Analysis
The potential agricultural benefit to application of the material must be established and proper agronomic rates of application must be calculated.
