FCC Environmental Services has signed an agreement with the City of Houston involving the delivery and final treatment of all the biosolids or sewage sludge produced by the city and the neighboring counties for the next 5 years.

Houston is the fourth largest city in population in the United States and a major hub worldwide for the oil, energy, medical and aerospace sectors. The contract will provide service to 2 million residents.

In order to provide these services, a fleet of 20 trucks and 40 trailers and tanks will be used to manage between 25,000 and 45,000 tons of biosolids produced each year in the city over the next five years, for approximately $30 million.
