RESEARCH THEME 3

Ensuring
sustainability

Environmental benefits

Developing technical solutions for biosolids transformation will not lead to enhanced and sustained industry opportunities if environmental regulations, policy frameworks and public perceptions are out of step with the science.

To this end, this theme will consider a number of topics that are central to the successful implementation of improved management of biosolids or related products relevant to water and agriculture industries and environmental protection agencies (EPAs).

These include facilitating an understanding of biosolids and tackling odour to improve community acceptance, developing national guidelines, developing a framework for evidence-based risk assessment of biosolids and its related products, and measuring public perception of the social and environmental benefits of biosolids transformation.
