Pinellas County Pelletizer

Pinellas County awarded Synagro a contract in 2001 to design, build and operate a municipal biosolids pelletizing facility using the state-of-the-art Andritz Drum Drying System, which includes an innovative processing feature and a “good neighbor” design. The project utilizes the most environmentally and technologically advanced biosolids process currently available. Combined with partner company Andritz’ now renowned Drum Drying System (DDS), the project enabled Pinellas County to build a facility that is invisible to the neighborhood and able to deliver the service at a cost-competitive rate.
