      Sewage sludge is waste for which the most positive outlet must be sought whilst, at the same time, making use of its qualities. In view of its organic matter and other nutrients content, it may be thought that the best system is to use it for agricultural purposes, although the load of heavy metals it may bear with it proves to be the main obstacle by: These Regulations implement Council Directive No. 86//EEC (OJ No. L/6) on the protection of the environment, and in particular of the soil, when sewage sludge is used in agriculture.

The second study enti- tled "Long-Term Use of Sewage Sludge on Agricultural and Disturbed Lands." reports on the following field studies: (1) the response of corn to repeated annual applications of sewage sludge, (2) the differential uptake of selected corn hybrids grown on sludge-amended soils, and (3) the effects of high sludge application rates on strip-mine spoil characteristics and the.

Get this from a library. Long-term use of sewage sludge on agricultural and disturbed lands. [T D Hinesly; Municipal Environmental Research Laboratory.;]. In recent years, the application of sewage sludge for agricultural use has gained a significant increase among farmers in Europe (Placek et al., ).

It appears that application of this biosolid on agricultural land is a logical and reasonable use due to its improvement in many soil properties, including the content of plant nutrients, organic matter, porosity, water retention, bulk density. Coal fly ash and municipal sewage sludge separately or together may be used for reclamation of disturbed lands due to mining activities and as soil amendments in agricultural soils.

This management looks to be among the most beneficial and environmentally sustainable by: 3. a) There is no conflict with good agricultural practice; b) The long term viability of agricultural activities is maintained; c) Public nuisance and water pollution are avoided; and d) Human, animal or plant health is not put at risk.

Introduction. The considerable amount of data on the use of sewage sludge in agriculture that was collected at the end of the 20th century (Page and Chang, ) has led to strict American and European regulations, USEPA 40CFR and 86/ EEC, respectively, aimed at the safe recycling of this material and an enhancement of its characteristics (Mc Grath et al., ).Cited by: The treatment of wastewater results in large amounts of municipal treated sewage sludge, or biosolids.

Sludge has traditionally been disposed through ocean-dumping, landfilling, or incineration. But due to increasingly stringent environmental regulations, these disposal methods are being phased.

"Biosolids" is a term often used in conjunction with reuse of sewage solids after sewage sludge treatment. Biosolids can be defined as organic wastewater solids that can be reused after stabilization processes such as anaerobic digestion and composting.

Opponents of sewage sludge reuse reject this term as a public relations term. In Alberta, it is common practice to apply sludge or biosolids to agricultural lands as a nutrient source; however, this must be done in accordance with standards and guidelines developed by the government. The issues and benefits associated with this type of application are extensive.

The Sewage Sludge Directive 86//EEC seeks to encourage the use of sewage sludge in agriculture and to regulate its use in such a way as to prevent harmful effects on soil, vegetation, animals and man.

To this end, it prohibits the use of untreated sludge on agricultural land unless it is injected or incorporated into the soil. The use of municipal sewage sludge to reclaim and revegetate land disturbed by mining activity could deal with two major problems (the 60% of land still unreclaimed and the increasing problem of finding landfills for sewage sludge disposal).

Sludge from Waste Water Treatment Plants and septic tanks can only be used in Agriculture in accordance with the Waste Management (Use of Sewage Sludge in Agriculture) Regulations, and the Waste Management (Use of Sewage Sludge in Agriculture) Regulations, Agricultural Use of Sewage Sludge Sewage sludges are recognized as potentially harmful because of the chemical pollutants and the disease-causing agents they may contain.

sludge end uses. Sludge produced by a water treatment plant has three main uses: recycling: mainly agriculture, with or without supplements but also for reinstating eroded sites (quarries, roadway excavations, replanting landfill sites), in forestry and urban landscaping ing means that the main elements making up sludge (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus) can be re.

In December,the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed draft national standards for organic agriculture. As part of this proposal, the department invited the public to comment on the idea of allowing application of municipal sewage sludge on land used to grow organic foods.
