Webinar: Municipal Organic Waste – 6th May 15:00pm

Dear ISWA Members,


ISWA is proud to announce our very own Soils Project which aims at “quantifying the benefit of organic matter in compost and digestate when applied to soils”.

The first of five upcoming reports is now published and, to kick us off, we are exciting to invite you to our first webinar discussing the publication:

Municipal Organic Waste – A Global Perspective on Production and Recycling
May 6th 2020 – 15:00pm (CEST)

The Webinar will be presented by the Chair and Vice-Chair of ISWA’s Working Group on Biological Treatment of Waste (WGBTW) respectively Marco Ricci-Jürgensen Msc. and Dr Jane Gilbert.

You can register below, as well as find more information on both the Soil’s Project in general as well as this first publication.

We hope you can join us.

Kind Regards,

ISWA General Secretariat


More About ISWA’s Soils Project

Soils are an endangered ecosystem globally and there is currently great interest in reducing erosion and improving the organic matter content of soils.

ISWA’s Soils Project aims at ‘quantifying the benefit of organic matter in compost and digestate when applied to soils’ takes a lead in providing robust evidence base to link waste management and soil enhancement/improvement.

The project reports 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.

These reports will also provide a tool for waste planners/managers and farmers, summarising how composting and anaerobic digestion can be used in different country situations, and how quality assured products can be usefully applied to soils.
