Schwing Bioset, Inc. Expands its Leadership Position as the Class A/AA Biosolids Solution Provider

 

Published on April 14, 2015 (Somerset, WI)

Schwing Bioset, Inc. has completed another successful Beneficial Reuse installation.  The City of Immokalee, Florida, chose Schwing Bioset to provide not only its Best in Class equipment, but design and build capabilities as well.

The heart of the system is the patented Bioset process and reactor that converts raw sludge into Class AA Biosolids, making it ready for easy land application.  Licensed as a fertilizer in the state of Florida, the Class AA product produced by the Bioset process is a highly marketable and sought after product.  Millions of tons have been produced and beneficially reused by the Bioset process. 

Taking advantage of some of the other high quality products Schwing Bioset offers, Immokalee integrated their Twin Piston Pump and Dewatering Screw Press into their design.

The Immokalee Water & Sewer District Executive Director, Eva Deyo, is very pleased with the system.  “The project came in under budget and went from concept to completion much quicker than other options.  As promised, the Schwing Bioset solution has proven to be easy to operate for our staff and very cost effective to operate, and the end product is exceptional,” said Deyo.  

Schwing Bioset Regional Sales Manager, Tom Welch, is thrilled with the results of the project.  “The City of Immokalee was tremendous to work with throughout the entire process.  Their vision and understanding of the value that the Schwing Bioset solution offered was evident throughout.  They realized after investigating numerous options that you don’t have to break the bank to get state-of-the-art technology,” said Welch.

“The experience of our Design, Engineering, and Project Management Teams has really shown during the execution of this fast track project.  The Schwing Bioset Team has executed on well over $150M in projects, with 2015 proving to be our biggest year ever,” said Tom Anderson, Owner and President of Schwing Bioset.

Feeling Green: Biosolids 101

Can you imagine living in a world where all of our raw sewage is dumped directly into rivers, lakes, or bays? What would that mean for your next fishing trip, your next family vacation to the ocean, or your next hot summer day spent splashing around in the local lake or creek?

Many of us don’t need to use much imagination to picture this scenario, because it wasn’t so very long ago that this careless sewage dumping happened in thousands of cities across America. According to the EPA, it was just thirty years ago that sewage made a one-way, non-stop trip to the water surrounding us.

My, how far we’ve come.

Today, thanks to vast improvements in wastewater treatment processes, American waterways are no longer the dumping grounds that they once were. Advanced wastewater treatment makes our waterways more hospitable to swimmers (both human and aquatic), and it also produces one very green side effect: biosolids.

As defined by the EPA, biosolids are “the nutrient-rich organic materials resulting from the treatment of sewage sludge.”

Sewage sludge isn’t very useful on its own, but once it is turned into biosolids, its potential is nothing short of extraordinary. Biosolids can be recycled and turned into super-powered fertilizer, which can be applied to land used for growing food. Today, roughly half of biosolids produced in the United States are being applied to land to beneficially improve soils. That’s a lot of recycled waste!

The EPA uses strict criteria and guidelines to ensure that biosolids are used safely. Thanks to these regulations and reliable, efficient biosolid processing systems like the Schwing Bioset process, raw sewage can be part of the ever-increasing green movement. Who knew poo could be as trendy as a canvas grocery bag?
