Nothing wasted, everything to gain! –Lystek and Central Marin Sanitation Agency (CMSA) team up to produce Class A EQ quality LysteGroTM biofertilizer, instead of filling landfills with biosolids.

What We Do

Lystek International Inc. is a leading provider of low temperature, Thermal Hydrolysis solutions for the sustainable management of biosolids and organics. The multi-use, award-winning Lystek system reduces costs, volumes and greenhouse gases by converting municipal and industrial wastewater treatment facilities into resource recovery centers. This is achieved through the patented and proven LysteMizeTM process of optimizing digester performance, increasing biogas for green energy, and transforming organic waste streams into LysteGroTM, a high-value, nutrient-rich biofertilizer and LysteCarbTM, an alternative carbon source for BNR systems.

Creating Sustainable Solutions

No one wants to waste the valuable nutrients in biosolids, but CMSA needed a year-round solution to close the cycle and return all of those nutrients back to the land. Lystek’s Organic Material Recovery Center is a sustainable way to manage the biosolids of many San Francisco Bay Area agencies, such as Fairfield Suisun Sewer District (FSSD), Central Marin Sanitation Agency (CMSA) and others. The facility will produce biogas for green energy and LysteGro, a Class A EQ licensed biofertilizer that has all the nutrients and organic matter plants and soils need.

Jason Dow, General Manager of the CMSA states that “We are proud to be a partner in the early development of this ground-breaking facility. It will play an important role in allowing us to diversify and stabilize our biosolids management planning and while contributing to the circular economy.“

Did you know?

Half of Central Marin Sanitation Agency (CMSA) biosolids (approximately 3,250 ton per year) will be sent to Lystek’s new, 150,000 ton, state-of-the-art , Organic Material Recovery Center at the Fairfield Suisun Sewer District (FSSD) in California.
