Let's talk about some advantages first. First of all, we know that it's a fertilizer, so one good thing is that it is a free fertilizer. By doing this then it will promote farming and also create jobs for many people. It can also reduce the emissions from transportation to landfills as well as recycling instead of filling it up. Biosolids will reclaim land and also cost less to dispose of. It is also legal since it is in the regulation of EPA law 503. These are just a few advantages of biosolids, but now lets look at some of the disadvantages.
So now we move on to disadvantages and let us see why this is hurting the environment. First of all, its a health hazard and it may even contain hazardous chemicals. Even if it reclaims land, it will however make the land drop in price. It may even be transferable to crops. What it is really made of is unknown to anyone so it makes it even more of a threat. Whatever it causes, it will be irreversible. After a long period of time the contamination will accumulate into toxic waste. It also has really bad odour and is also not sufficiently regulated. Here are only a few of the many reasons that biosolids must be taken out of use.
Lastly lets talk about who would want to have a share in this and if this a good idea or a bad idea. Some stakholders of biosolids are coming from the municipal, provincial, federal and territorial agencies that are agreeing on this. They want to use enviromental benefits to help us, but they should know that they are hurting the earth rather than helping it. They don't know exactly what biosolids are and this in turn is like putting some random ingredient in the food you eat. This is why biosolids are a bad substitute for the normal agriculture ethics we do.
