N-Viro Systems Canada LP offers its own patented process and know-how for the sustainable and safe treatment and recycling of municipal wastewater biosolids and other bio-organic wastes (including source separated kitchen wastes), utilizing alkaline byproducts. N-Viro offers an innovative and cost effective solution to bio-organic waste management. Small municipalities can benefit using a "Hub" type system to share one biosolids treatment facility. The N-Viro process stabilizes and pasteurizes organic wastes and produces a value added product called N-Rich® that has a number of beneficial uses. As part of our process, harmful bacteria are destroyed and beneficial soil bacteria survive. Our process reduces odours to acceptable levels, neutralizes or immobilizes heavy metals, and generates a final product that is a biologically stable, low-odour, safe, soil-like material that will have a solids content of approximately 60%. The N-Rich® meets the requirements of the Canadian Fertilizers Act and Regulations. The final product can also be used as a fuel supplement for a co-generation facility (NViroFuel®), or it can be used as a co-composting material to assist and expedite the composting of a number of organic materials including pulp plant organics. N-Rich® enhances plant growth and reduces GHG.
