Scientist and phosphorus expert

We developed Sludge Treatment Wetlands after becoming aware of the difficulties of disposing of dewatered geobag sludge. The material is too wet! Hauling it is too expensive! There has to be a better way!

Turns out there is - Sludge Treatment Wetlands. Dewatered material is 2-3 times drier than geobag material, and we don't use chemicals.

The stuff is so clean, we turn it into organic fertilizer and sell it. So you don't have to worry about disposal any more.

Our solution was judged one of the Top 10 in the World by the USEPA, and we won an award at the White House in 2016 in the Nutrient Recycling Challenge. It is low cost, simple, and chemical free.

Michael Inman - Owner R&M Farms

Michael Inman is the proud owner of the first Agricultural Sludge Treatment Wetland in the World, on his family farm near Tar Heel, Bladen County.

Michael has been farming hogs for 30 years, and is a Sow Service Representative with Prestage Farms. Michael represents District 4 on the Board of the North Carolina Pork Council and was NC Pork All-American in 2006.

“Farmers have to protect the environment, and they have to do something about sludge. This is the best option available for dealing with sludge while protecting the environment for another generation.”

“I can’t believe how dry the sludge looks.”
