Municipal Waste Water Treatment

Lime is used in municipal waste water treatment to stabilize biosolids by killing pathogens, viruses and reducing vector attraction to produce high quality fertilizers for the agricultural industry.

Lime treatment has many other attributes including:
  • reducing biosolids odors and improving handling through drying.
  • ensuring pH and alkalinity are correct to optimize biological treatment operations.
  • adjusting pH and alkalinity to optimize coagulation and flocculation settling processes.
  • Controlling nutrients like phosphorus, as lime precipitates phosphorous to very low levels without biological treatment.
