Metal concentrations in lime stabilised, thermally dried and anaerobically digested sewage sludges.
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-11-25)
Cognisant of the negative debate and public sentiment about the land application of treated sewage sludges ( biosolids ), it is important to characterise such wastes beyond current regulated parameters. Concerns may be ...
Nutrient, metal and microbial loss in surface runoff following treated sludge and dairy cattle slurry application to an Irish grassland soil
Treated municipal sewage sludge ( biosolids ) and dairy cattle slurry (DCS) may be applied to agricultural land as an organic fertiliser. This study investigates losses of nutrients in runoff water (nitrogen (N) and ...
Resource recovery from sludge
(International Water Association, 2015)
[no abstract available]
Quantitative risk assessment of antimicrobials in biosolids applied on agricultural land and potential translocation into food
The use of biosolids as a fertiliser may be an indirect route for contaminants into the food chain. One of the main concerns regarding the spreading of biosolids on agricultural land is the potential uptake of contaminants ...
Estimation of Maximum Biosolids and Meat and Bone Meal Application to a Low P Index Soil and a Method to Test for Nutrient and Metal Losses
The aim of this study was to develop (1) a method for the calculation of the maximum legal rate at which meat and bone meal (MBM) and biosolids should be applied to land, which took into account the soil phosphorus (P) ...
A quantitative microbial risk assessment model for total coliforms and e. coli in surface runoff following application of biosolids to grassland
In Ireland, the land application of biosolids is the preferred option of disposing of municipal sewage waste. Biosolids provide nutrients in the form of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and increases organic matter. It is ...
Bioaccumulation of metals in ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) following the application of lime stabilised, thermally dried and anaerobically digested sewage sludge.
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2016-05-09)
The uptake and accumulation of metals in plants is a potential pathway for the transfer of environmental contaminants in the food chain, and poses potential health and environmental risks. In light of increased population ...
Antimicrobial compounds (triclosan and triclocarban) in sewage sludges, and their presence in runoff following land application
The reuse of treated municipal sewage ( biosolids ) on land is an effective method to divert waste away from landfill and to use an alternative, low cost method of fertilisation. While legislation has mainly focused on the ...
