This course will present the many and varied opportunities for beneficial re-use of biosolids, and the regulatory environment and public relations challenges that guide and shape this re-use. The core of the course focuses on the different beneficial re-use options on large and small scales, using examples and case studies from across North America.  In addition, participants will be introduced to the production and preparation approaches (thickening, digestion, dewatering) that are required to achieve the right quality of the end product. The current and future regulatory environment around management and re-use of biosolids will be discussed with a focus on Alberta, and to a lesser extent Canada. The importance of proactive public relations will be woven throughout the content.
