SED Services Ltd are proud to work closely with United Utilities Water, taking valuable biosolids to agricultural land. SED have worked with United Utilities for over 15 years on this project and are now in a key position on their top 50 suppliers list.
Biosolids are produced at Waste Water Treatment plants, which produce either Conventional sludge or Enhanced Sludge. This waste is treated at United Utilities sites, where pathogens are destroyed enabling this valuable material to be put to agricultural land. This ethical and beneficial form of waste disposal is applied to agricultural land providing necessary soil nutrition and conditioning properties.
SED have been able to work closely with United Utilities and subsequently with the Environment Agency to develop a sludge to land protocol that is environmentally friendly and beneficial to land.
Details of the types of sludge and treatments it can undergo are detailed on the safe sludge matrix.
