The sustainable use of compost -1, Soil strucure & carbon storage – Factsheet ECN
Geplaatst op 4 juni 2020
This factsheet from the European Compost Network (ECN) puts the focus on the benefit of regular application of compost in respect to the sequestration of high amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Amongst other positive aspects of compost application which are highligthed in this paper the enrichment of soil-organic matter leads to improved soil structure and a higher level of soil microbiological activity. An estimation about Europe's potential for C-sequestration by recycling of bio-waste to high-quality compost illustrates the importance of this resource.
