In July 2003, the Water Environment Research Foundation organized the Biosolids Research Summit in response to the NRC 2002 report, Biosolids Applied to Land: Advancing Standards and Practices. Participants identified 31 potential highest-priority research projects in six categories needed to address concerns regarding land application of Class A and/or Class B treated sewage sludge/biosolids. The categories are: human health; pathogens; fate and transport of organic and inorganic chemicals; risk assessment; treatment, odor, and management; and social and economic issues. This report captures these research priorities along with full summary of the event. Published by WERF. 185 pages. Soft cover.
