Agricultural Advantages of ATAD Biosolids

A field study was conducted to formally evaluate and document any differences in the soil's retention of valuable Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium in addition to micronutrients, the availability of such nutrients, plant absorption, and corn yields between the following fertilizers: ATAD Class A municipal biosolids, commercial fertilizer, and cow manure. It is anticipated that the ATAD biosolids, processed via the controlled and intense aeration of waste slurries in an enclosed, insulated bioreactor under fully aerobic conditions, will provide greater nutrient retention and availability, resulting in higher yields than commercial fertilizer and manure.
