ISWA aims to summarize current knowledge about the fate of recycled carbon in soils, in particular, its sequestration and effects on soils by talking about key areas of the world where threats to soils are severe and could benefit from organic matter inputs.
In total four reports have been published. Each report has been accompanied by a webinar whereby the experts have presented their findings as well as given the opportunity to answer questions from fellow waste professionals.
- Global assessment of municipal organic waste production and recycling
- Benefits of compost and anaerobic digestate when applied to soil
- Summary of the state of soils in five countries
- Quantifying the benefits of applying quality compost to soil
The reports are also available for download in the document-section of this website (English Documents – EU documents)
