Biosolids Management: Business Models & Utility Strategies
Published: August 3, 2020 Content info:

Scaling capital and operational expenditure demands on more than 20,000 wastewater treatment plants across the U.S. were already squeezing municipal and utility budgets prior to March 2020 and the onset of COVID-19. The advent of new technologies and business models, however, present opportunities for utility leaders to transform their wastewater treatment operations. This includes resource recovery of produced byproducts and even the potential generation of alternative revenue streams.
