The Sewage Sludge Ordinance specifies how sewage sludge, sewage sludge mixtures and compost may be recycled. Specifications apply to agricultural and forestry use, measures in landscaping and use in home gardens, kitchen gardens or allotments.
This ordinance applies in particular to the operators of wastewater treatment plants who are responsible for sewage sludge production.
According to §3 (1) Circular Economy Act, these operators of sewage sludge are obliged to, to recycle the sewage sludge produced in the waste water treatment plant to the highest possible quality as far as this is technically possible and economically reasonable. The aim is to recover phosphorus and to return the phosphorus or phosphorus-containing sewage sludge incineration ash to the economic cycle.
Article 4 §3a obliges the sewage sludge producer to,
to submit a report by 31.12.2023 at the latest on the measures planned and initiated
to ensure phosphorus recovery within the meaning of the Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act from 2029 onwards.
