Efforts are being made to reduce the volume of biodegradable wastes sent to landfill each year. Composting biodegradable materials prior to landfilling can help to reduce the later generation and emission of methane, but some composted material may be of sufficient quality for use as soil improvers, mulches, growing media substrates and as significant ingredients in manufactured topsoils and turf dressings.
Composts that are safe, effective, plentiful and economical can be extremely beneficial in the following markets;
- Land Restoration
- Soft Landscaping
- Sports Recreation
PAS100 (Publicly Available Specification) has been developed to specify requirements for composting. It considers the selection of input materials, the minimum quality of composted materials, and the storage, labeling and traceability of compost products.
We are a nationally approved laboratory specialising in the analysis of compost and suitable recycled green waste products to PAS 100 standard.
