Queenslanders produce approximately 2000 tonnes wet organic solids per day, costing $40 million per year to process, with substantial environmental costs in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and other impact factors. Large scale facilities have suitable advanced technology, but smaller scale (<100,000) persons treatment plants lack the same level of technology. To address the goal of low-cost, low imact small-scale biosolids treatment, this project will further develop a novel technology, discovered at the University, and apply it at pilot-scale. Smart State funding will be leverage by matching funds from industry partners to provide a mature, market ready product.
