Biosolids are used as soil conditioner and fertilizer for forests, agriculture, landscapes, and gardens. All the nutrients and organic matter in biosolids enrich the soil and support healthy plant growth. Biosolids are also used to restore and reclaim severely damaged soils, such as old mine or construction sites. Biosolids have even been used to restore old logging roads and wetlands.
Many types of biosolids products exist, such as:
- straight biosolids or cake
- soil mixes
- pellet or liquid fertilizers
