Compost Use Applications – A Return on Investment (ROI) Project Finished and Available on Website

01/07/2022 12:32 PM

In 2020 during the COMPOST2020 conference, many people and organizations donated generously to fund this recently completed research project. The goal of the project was to research current literature and studies documenting ROI and then create specification use factsheets (spec sheets) that provide specific instructions for use and explain the ROI for very specific applications. While organic diversion has increased, market demand for compost has not kept pace. One reason for this is that it has been difficult to educate the market on the economic benefits of applying compost. These 10 factsheets have been created to help with that education process. All of the factsheets are now available for download on the CREF website HERE.

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).
