MEET NEFCO RECYCLE, RENEW, RESTORE
NEFCO has been a leader in recycling, renewing, and restoring community water and land resources from day one. Our biosolids production approach produces a beneficial Class A biosolids product that is used in premium fertilizer. This fertilizer goes a long way in renewing the earth to grow healthy feedstock and food crops. By recycling waste into such a safe, rich organic product, NEFCO plays a pivotal role in biosolids management.
Our end product also can be recycled for use as a solid fuel, displacing coal in other commercial applications. Dried raw sludge, for example, has a calorific value of 7,500 to 8,000 BTU/lb while digested sludge has a calorific value of 6,000 to 6,500 BTU/lb. These fuel values are similar to lignite or coal, but are available for energy production without the environmental impacts of mining and processing.
Today, NEFCO continually pursues its goal to be the most environmentally responsible biosolids partner in the country, expanding biosolids treatment into a better, more efficient and affordable process through sustainable operation. NEFCO strives to help restore the environment in which we live by producing resourcefully recycled fertilizer products; generating clean, renewable energy; and greatly reducing the carbon footprint impacts from municipal wastewater solids management.
