The biosolids problem and how we solve it.
An age-old problem that
has yet to be solved,
Biosolids disposal is a major source of GHG emissions and a material cost to New Yorkers.
The biosolids disposal problem in NY is getting worse with no inexpensive solution in sight.
We create a “beneficial use” byproduct that destroys PFAS and other contaminants.
We solve a costly problem that local governments have with biosolids disposal.
All other biosolids disposal methods contribute heavily to GHG and regulated air emissions.
All other biosolids disposal methods spread PFAS that is commonly found in biosolids.
Biosolid recycling options spread numerous contaminants onto agricultural soils.

Ensuring our air emissions are safe, our GHG emissions are low, and our odors are impeccably managed are the primary factors that will determine our success with public utilities.
SBS employs benchmark air treatment to protect human health and our reputation.
Biosolids have traces of many contaminants, including PFAS, that must be remediated.
Pyrolysis is a decontamination technology that works extremely well with biosolids.
Pyrolysis has been similarly used to remediate soil contaminants for decades, albeit without the advanced air treatment solution that we employ.
SBS materially reduces/eliminates PFAS and other contaminants from wastewater effluent streams.
