The Foreground Analysis of Sewage Sludge Agriculture Application in China


Article Preview

The problem and several restricted factors of agriculture application of sewage sludge are analyzed at home and abroad. Meanwhile, this paper points out that the several restricted factors of agriculture application include mainly: hazardous chemical matters and heavy metal, receptivity of farmers and consumers to the product of sewage sludge, perfect policy and criterion standards, disposing charge of sewage sludge. The several restricted factors of agriculture application should be resolved if sewage sludge is used safely and environment.
