October 10, 2023 - Biosolids Optimization
Wastewater facilities throughout the Midwest are facing a new challenge. Managing biosolids. With the possibility of new regulations, lack of land application, the costs of transporting biosolids, or handling contaminated biosolids – facilities are faced with a decision of how to move forward to the future. We present technology that addresses biosolids with innovation, automation, and efficiency.

July 18, 2023: ICS Group partner, Shincci-USA, was featured in an article by TPO. A New Hampshire recycling company shares their experience of using the low-temperature drying process to deliver 90% dry Class A biosolids for beneficial use.
In 2018, RMI introduced a new drying technology that helped wastewater treatment plants dramatically reduce biosolids volume and improve quality.
After successful piloting, the dryer was selected by the custoemr and produced biosolids at 88-92% solids, significantly cutting the volume that needs to be transported. The biosolids management effort led to RMI being selected as the 2021 recipient of the Green Steps Award from the New England Water Environment Association.
Watershed Moments from Wrightstown, WI

July 11, 2023: Travis Coenen grew up on the river in Wrightstown, fishing, canoeing, and launching from the boat ramp. As an adult, he works for the community as the Village Administrator of Wrightstown.
He was aware of the pollution in the river, even when he was young. He didn’t know what was causing it, but when the algae would bloom in late summer, “all of a sudden the river would turn bright green – like in Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day when they dye the river. It didn’t seem right.”
After years of partnership with the Fox-Wolf Watershed Alliance, Travis knows the work is making a difference . “I feel blessed that I got acquainted with Fox-Wolf. The collaborative efforts they’ve initiated, created, or facilitated have been amazing,” he said. “They’re stewards out there trying to actually fix things. Their feet-on-the-ground initiatives are actually happening.”
