Realizing the need for beneficial biosolids management, President Mike Van Ham, founded SYLVIS in 1988.
SYLVIS was founded in 1989 in response to a need for residuals research and the operational management of a large inventory of municipal biosolids.
We conducted extensive research leading to the development of regulations and best management practices enabling beneficial residuals management.
We completed consultation and education programs to increase awareness and facilitate learning.
We identified, assessed and developed short and long-term residuals management opportunities. Concurrently we developed the equipment and resources to provide turn-key residuals management services to our clients.
Twenty-five years later SYLVIS’s mission remains the same – we research, recommend and implement beneficial residuals management.
