Meeting Various Application Needs

The nutrient composition of biosolids makes it an effective fertilizer in small and large scale agricultural settings. Lystek is managing a diverse collection of research projects and demonstrations to show how effective biosolids can be in your garden or in agricultural fields. Biosolids are showing up in community gardens around the world. Washington DC has partnered with several community gardens to use the utility’s Bloom product. Lystek has even created a company garden for their employees that makes use of their product. The same goes for horticultural applications where biosolids is used by landscaping companies. Tests have shown that biosolids performs well when used as a fertilizer for growing various plants when compared to other additives and fertilizers. Scaling up to larger agricultural applications we have seen time and time again that biosolids are an affordable alternative to chemical fertilizers and often provide a nutrient release cycle and nutrient balance that better serves farmers needs and helps eliminate nutrient runoff that is harmful to waterways.
