Dr. Freda Porter is a leader in developing and implementing processes
to apply biosolids from wastewater treatment facilities to farmlands.
In 1996, Dr. Porter worked with executives and engineers of Vac-Con,
Inc. in Florida to design a device and procedure that would reduce
costs of handling wastewater treatment facility residuals.
partnership has led to the development of a specially designed spreader
that can be mounted on the rear door of any Vac-Con unit. The innovation
has led to growth in land application of biosolids in areas where
farmland is nearby and plentiful. The design has cut costs and improved
the efficiency of biosolids application.
Porter Environmental was featured in CLEANER Magazine in the EXPO
February 2001 issue for its contribution to the design of the Spreader.
