They say you can’t polish a turd...we beg to differ.
We take wastewater sludge (Biosolids) and turn it into fertilizer.

We won’t sit here and pretend like our sludge doesn’t stink. The truth is, we help farmers to fertilize their crops to grow better in more nutrient-rich soil. And by taking all that waste, we are helping the environment.

So what the heck is high-quality sludge? Oh, You know...the thing your dad used to whack a large nail with? No, that’s a sledgehammer, not sludge

Sludge is a slime that comes from the waste that goes down the drain and into the sewer. It’s a muddy liquid that’s produced when the solids are removed from wastewater. Put simply, it is organic matter that is removed from sewage. It may sound gross, but it can be a great resource for farmers to use.

Sludge is extracted from the water at the Wastewater Treatment Facility.   All of the byproducts of what is pulled out are called biosolids. After, it’s sent to West Central Biosolids for further processing it becomes a nutrient-rich fertilizer and helps farmers enrich their fields.

Our Ellsworth facility may look like a space station inside, but it’s not rocket science. It’s actually bio-science and friendly to the environment. Our process starts with what’s called “biosolids,”  and other waste pulled from wastewater. We first treat the biosolid by running it through a centrifuge to dewater it, giving us a drier substance called cake. 

The cake is then processed using a lime stabilization system to reduce odor, remove pathogens, and produce a better and more stable fertilizer that can be used as an alternative for chemical fertilizers.  The end product is dissolved into the soil to make it nutrient-rich and good for the growth of crops.
