Managed Organic Recycling, Inc. (MOR) offers a range of professional services to the biosolids and soil products industry. We can assist clients in engineering, permitting, marketing, manufacturing and sale of soil amendment products. The range of services we can provide is summarized as follows:
Engineering and Design Services
MOR can provide full service engineering for biosolids processing and odor control facilities. MOR has staff or registered professionals with experience in design of complex wastewater treatment plants, including the 100 million gallon per day Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility in Salt Lake city, UT. Our engineers have also designed recycled water treatment facilities for several municipal clients.
Biosolids Management And Recycling
Since 1975 MOR engineers have been involved in planning, design and permitting of over 15 biosolids management projects. MOR designed fertilizer enrichment systems to increase the nitrogen concentration in biosolids feedstock (Corona, CA 1995), belt filter press dewatering systems (CVWRF at Salt Lake City, UT 1981), and numerous land application sites (Silva 1997, Souza 1996, Jess Ranch 1992-2006, Sunnyvale 1992, Sacramento 1997, Stockton 1997, Red Bluff 1978, San Leandro 1994 -2006, and Patterson 2001). Over the past 15 years MOR has recycled over 2.5 million wet tons of biosolids materials to land.
In-Vessel Aerated Static Pile Composting Technology
Dr. Eliot Epstein developed the aerated static pile (ASP) technology at the US Department of Agriculture in 1968. Since then he has been involved in the planning and design of over 200 composting facilities. John Bouey worked with Eliot on the first biosolids composting pilot study in 1980 for the Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility in Salt Lake City, UT. The study showed that even raw biosolids could be successfully composted and kill virtually all pathogens. Today Eliot and John have taken the ASP composting technology one step further by adding a cover system. Now the piles can be aerated in the positive aeration mode eliminating the need for biofilters (odor control) and produce a Class A soil amendment product in less than six weeks.
MOR designed land reclamation programs for abandoned mine sites in northern California using wastewater biosolids to increase soil fertility and texture. Designs are based on US Mine Reclamation law (SARA) to enable the site operator/owner to meet their permit obligations for mine closure. Biosolids applied at 5 to 10 times agricultural application rates has been successful at promoting establishment of a vegetative cover and yet still be protective of underlying groundwater quality requirement.
Organic Waste And Odor Control Consulting
Managed Organic Recycling (MOR) has experience in all types of organic waste handling and treatment. MOR designed septage handling and treatment systems, lagoons for dairy and hog farms, and individual waste disposal systems (septic tank and leach field designs). With the new cover system for odor control MOR can now design cost effective odor collection and treatment (either biofilters or scrubbers) to handle any odor emission sources.
