CCREF Raised Over $50,000 to Increase Research

02/12/2020 1:59 PM

With an outpouring of generous support from many companies and individuals, the Composting Council Research & Education Foundation was able to raise over $50,000 at COMPOST2020.  These funds will be used for new specific research projects.  The first on the list is the project Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis of Applying Compost to Aid Product Marketing.  The goal of this project is to help educate the market on the economic benefits of applying compost.  If funding allows, the next project CCREF will start will be Best Management Practices (BMP) for Compost Production.  That’s a much larger project that will need additional fundraising to complete.  The CCREF Trustees and staff would like to express how grateful they are to everyone who donated to the Foundation and these new research projects.


This toolkit is designed to help you determine if a compostable plastics program is appropriate for your organization and to guide you in properly managing your compostable plastics.

*Resources outlined in this toolkit are examples from a variety of sources to help facilitate a better understanding of compostable products and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Compost Research and Education Foundation (CREF).
