Statistical portrait of Beneficial use of fertilizing residuals in 2007

Abstract

In 2007, two million tons of municipal and industrial residuals were recycled as fertilizing residuals (FR). More than one million tons of these FR were spread on agricultural soils and close to a million tons were used to make compost, revegetate devastated lands or make soil mixes. This article presents the statistical portrait of this recycling, with a particular emphasis on agricultural use and the management of municipal biosolids. See Statistical portrait of Beneficial use of fertilizing residuals in 2007 (French).
