The Peace River Pulp Division of Daishowa-Marubeni International Ltd(DMI) runs a soil amendment program known as NutriBoost. This program involves the land application of biosolids from its treatment process to farm fields supplying farmers with slow-release nitrogen and phosphorous nutrients to boost agricultural productivity and eliminate the need for commercial fertilizers. This program has effectively taken what was once considered a waste and turned it into a beneficial product. On an annual basis, the NutriBoost program recycles 5,000 BDT of biosolids, which makes it the largest recycling program in northwestern Alberta.
