High Biosolids Transport Costs and Carbon Footprint

All the UK utilities transport bio-solids from rural and smaller sites, and some of the larger sites by tankers.

Due to the process, the content is predominately water with some solids, possibly 2-3%.

The cost is enormous in £ and the carbon footprint is extremely high.

These costs of are readily available on the government site and run in multi-millions for them all. 

Why are they not doing more to reduce cost and carbon footprint? What is the biggest obstacle?
