WEF recognizes that biosolids, a natural byproduct of wastewater treatment, are a renewable resource that is too valuable to waste given our growing needs for renewable energy and sustainability. Thus, WEF endorses and encourages the innovative beneficial recycling and use of biosolids. This updated statement expands WEF’s prior position that had focused primarily on land application of biosolids in support of EPA regulations.
