US (FL): Homestead fertilizer plant due back online

The City of Homestead’s composting facility, which turns the city’s bio-solid waste into super-strength fertilizer, is expected to come back online within the next four months after a year-long pause in operations to sort out operational issues.

In April 2016, after the discovery of odor issues and improper procedures, the facility was shut down until city officials could convene to discuss how to move forward.

After a greenhouse inspection and a review of composting procedures, Parkson Co. noted that, among other issues, moisture was not being circulated well enough within the greenhouse to dry the bio-solids.

The city purchased nine specialized fans to use in the drying process, in accordance with Parkson Co.’s findings.
