Composting

Composting and organic waste materials


Market participants are constantly looking for the most efficient way to realise the economic value of organic waste streams. Growing understanding in the primary sector means that there is increasing awareness of the market value of compost for soil management. Quality assurance with the Keurcompost quality mark is an instrument to safeguard quality and value. By comparing compost applications with other soil improvers, it is possible to gain an overview of CO2 reduction using CO2 reduction certificates.
 
Aside from soil applications, there is also strong growth in energy applications from organic waste streams. Centralising biomass at biomass depots opens up the market, while the sustainable origin of biomass can be guaranteed by means of NTA 8080 certification.
There is also interest in the application of biorefining, for example of lignocellulose material for biobased innovations.
 
Process management and complying with the legislation and regulations remain constant points of attention in a changing enforcement framework. The liquid-tight floors in the composting facility, as well as percolate tanks and industrial sewerage will need to meet the quality requirements for soil protection in consultation with the competent authority. Issuing a Liquid-Tight Facility Declaration when it can be demonstrated that the requirements of the AS6700 standard have been met.
