Technology that converts watewater sludge into soil-enrichment products!!!

The biggest threat that is posing a great challenge to earth and the humanity inhabiting the planet is hazardous wastes that are produced as a result of human activities. With the evolution of human race our lifestyle, nutrition, and professional needs have spurred us to exploit earth's natural resources more and more. Over the years this exploitation has led to the depletion of vital resources such as fresh water, fertile soil, minerals, oxygen, etc.

Of course when humans can destroy, there are those who think of rejuvenation also. There are scientists and organizations in various parts of the world that are working towards researching and developing technologies that help minimize waste, convert hazardous wastes into productive material. One such entity is, the home page of N-Vitro International Corporation. This research organization is involved in developing and licensing technologies that convert waste water sludge and other bio-organic wastes into bio-mineral agricultural and soil-enrichment products.

This technology is useful for municipalities and private companies. The processes use lime and mineral-rich combustion byproducts to treat, pasteurize, immobilize and convert the wastes into useful products. In a very short time since its promotion the company has attained a sales revenue of over $40 million. In October 1993, the company went public with underwriting by Robertson Stephens, Raymond James, Oppenheimer & Co., and Paine Webber.
