Sewage sludge product licenced

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has licenced a product made from sewage sludge at a plant at St. Marys.

LysteGo is produced at the Water Resource Recovery Facility in St. Marys using Lystek technology.

The company has six Canadian facilities and a seventh in the works in California.

Combined, Lystek says those plants can convert more than 350,000 tonnes of biosolids and other organics into biofertilizer products per year.

Company President Rick Mosher says LysteGo biofertilizer has multiple uses in areas such as agriculture, sod farming and horticulture.

The Waterloo Region is expressing interest in turning its sewage sludge into commercial fertiiizer.
