Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Bio-solids and their Application to Farmland in Ontario
The law, environmental consequences and the politics of bio-solid use
Bio-solids are a controversial topic in the present day and age and will surely remain so for as long as the environment is a major source of concern for so many. The next several pages will look at the history of bio-solids (with specific focus upon bio-solids in Ontario), and will discuss the various types of bio-solids.
