EcoPearl Pellets are derived from biosolids feedstock (wastewater treatment plant).
EcoPearl Pellets are slow-release, in this case it means approximate nitrogen release of 60% within the first year, 30% in the second year and the remainder in the third year. Other nutrients including phosphorous, copper, zinc, molybdenum, iron and nickel are completely released within the first year.
The potential for exposure diminishes as environmental conditions such as heat, sunlight, desiccation, and other microorganisms destroy pathogens that may be present in biosolids. As noted by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, there have been no reported outbreaks of infectious disease associated with exposure to properly treated and utilized biosolids.
