Abstract:

The purpose of this technical note is to provide a screening test that can be used to evaluate the potential for manufacturing artificial soil using dredged material, cellulose waste materials e.g., yard waste compost, sawdust, wastepaper, and biosolids e.g., N-Viro-reconditioned sewage sludge, BIONSOIL-reconstituted cow manure. This procedure will allow the most productive blend of any dredged material uncontaminated or contaminated, cellulose, and biosolids to be determined and recommended for use in an environmentally productive and beneficial manner.
