safe sludge matrix

The nutri-bio team use the Safe Sludge Matrix as a pre-requisite for all biosolids applications.

The Safe Sludge Matrix is an agreement between Water UK and the British Retail Consortium (BRC). It consists of a table of the crop types, together with clear guidance on the minimum acceptable standards of biosolids, which may be applied to a particular crop or rotation.

The agreement was driven by the desire to ensure the highest possible standards of food safety and provide a framework that gives the retailers and food industry confidence that biosolids reuse on agricultural land is safe.

The matrix enables farmers and growers to continue to utilise the beneficial properties in biosolids as a valuable and cost effective source of nutrients and organic matter.

Biosolids Recycling Assurance & Sustainable Solutions (BRASS) illustrates the fundamentals, which the Anglian Water biosolids recycling team follow to ensure a consistently high level of performance.
