REA leads initiative to boost compost quality
The ORG releases its Feedstock Quality Package to strive for the quality of biowaste delivered to composting.
The Renewable Energy Association’s Organics Recycling Group (ORG) announces the Feedstock Quality Package, a best practice guide which will assist in reducing plastics and other physical contaminants in feedstock for composting. The breakthrough Feedstock Quality Package, advanced and published today by the ORG and supported by local authority representative bodies NAWDO and LARAC, sets best practice guidance for composters and local authorities to work together to improve the quality of feedstocks collected and delivered to composting sites.
