A new testing method and labeling guidelines have been approved to enable producers of biosolids-based products to measure and advertise the amount of phosphate in a carbon-based fertilizer that is readily water soluble (and slowly releasing). This measure is referred to as water extractable phosphorous (WEP).
On Friday, November 5, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (H.R. 3684). This bill will provide nearly $1.2 trillion in funding for the nation’s infrastructure.
This year the WEFTEC Bookstore will host two authors to sign copies of their books.

The Global Center offers a space for learning about global water issues offering two days of programming including presentations and panel discussions of global interest with topics ranging from energy efficiency to global water stewardship.
Each year WEFTEC attracts the leading experts from throughout the water sector on every topic imaginable. And that includes you. Others want to hear your insights and understand things from your perspective.
For the first time ever, we will broadcast live from WEFTEC. This programming will give everyone, everywhere the chance to sample some of the best of WEFTEC.
We also know that not everyone who wants to join us will be able to. To help bridge that gap and provide a sense of the action happening live in Chicago, we have designed this free, open access portal.
At the July 2021 meeting of the American Association of Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO; Arlington, Virginia), the organization recognized a new method to measure water-extractable phosphorus (WEP) for fertilizer products. The results from this method highlight the slower release of phosphate-phosphorus from biosolids-based (and other carbon-based) products. AAPFCO also determined that making labeling claims of slowly available phosphate for carbon-based products was allowable.
