Kimley-Horn Water Expert Discusses Biosolids Recycling on WEF Podcast
Kimley-Horn’s Wayne White and Ted Merrell of Merrell Bros., Inc. spoke about innovative biosolids reuse solutions on Water Environment Federation’s Words on Water podcast.
This conversation with host Travis Loop was based on the biosolids recycling design-build-operate project that Kimley-Horn completed in partnership with Merrell Bros., Inc. in Pasco County, Florida. To follow new biosolids regulations in Florida and optimize existing recycling processes, Merrell Bros., Inc. created and patented a process that converts aerobic sludge into fertilizer at a significantly lower energy cost. This sustainable process relies on solar energy and limited fossil fuel pasteurization, transforming biosolids into usable material and keeping them out of landfills for the benefit of recyclers and their communities.
