Standard CAN/BNQ 0413-400
Soil Amendments - Alkaline or Dried Municipal Biosolids

CAN/BNQ 0413-400 is a national standard that specifies the characteristics of alkaline or dried municipal biosolids as well as the criteria and methods used to verify these characteristics. The standard applies to municipal biosolids resulting from a thermal or alkaline process that are used as soil amendments. The processes are recognized as destroying pathogens such as salmonella, enteroviruses and viable ascarid eggs. The standard sets out requirements regarding five main areas:

  • moisture content;
  • level of inorganic trace elements;
  • level of organic chemical compounds;
  • microbiologic characteristics (level of salmonella and control measures for the processing of alkaline or dried municipal biosolids);
  • tests for purposes of labelling.

As well, the standard sets out requirements regarding sampling, test methods, controls, labelling and general warnings.
