This paper reports on the progress of a programme to develop a range of new OrganoMineral Fertilisers (OMF) based on sewage sludge for more sustainable agricultural recycling.
The preliminary results seem to indicate that the formulated OMF are suitable for application
on both grassland and wheat. Therefore, they could prove to be a low-cost fertiliser with
improved physical characteristics and whose storage and handling could be enhanced by
means of using large fertiliser bags. The production of OMF appears to be a sustainable
solution for the recycling of sewage-sludge to agriculture and would help to secure this route
for disposal while protecting the water industry’s business.
