Biosolids Management Technologies

COURSE NO: C06-008
Biosolids Management Technologies
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on new technologies entering the market, including conditioning, thickening, stabilization, dewatering, thermal conversion and drying of biosolids.  It presents the state of development, available cost information, associated contact names, and related data sources for each technology.


Biosolids are the organic materials resulting from treatment and processing of wastewater. Biosolids are also referred to as sewage sludge. Sewage sludge regulations continue to reduce options for disposal, and rising energy costs are causing a new wave of technologies to be introduced into this market. Wastewater treatment plants and engineers are involved with evaluating the latest and best technologies for this changing industry.


The 6 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers, as well as for students with basic wastewater treatment knowledge or for technical professionals that need to evaluate new and emerging alternative biosolids management technologies.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the general requirements of the USEPA Clean Water Act
  • Learning about the new and emerging biosolids treatment technologies
  • Familiarizing with the energy and beneficial use considerations for biosolids
  • Learning about the support information for choosing alternative technologies
