Sludge Treatment Systems (STS)
The STS is a process installation which stabilizes blended wastewater sludge cake with targeted alkaline admixture to produce a pasteurized granular soil-like material. The product, known as “ecosoil” is easy to handle and has long-term stability and high water retention characteristics, ideal for improving the physical properties of sandy soil and degraded land. Ecosoil can be stockpiled in the open for long periods of time and retain its stability without producing odors or pathogen re-growth. Tested by the Israeli government’s Agricultural Research Organization (A.R.O.) Volcani Center, Ecosoil was found to be the finest pathogen and nematode killer available, replacing chemical pesticides.
