Municipal Organic Residues for Biochar and Compost in the EU27
Meyer-Kohlstock, D., Sebök, S., Schmitz, T., Kraft, E.
There is a large potential of organic residues from municipalities in the European Union. Most of the potential is not utilised yet, but wasted by being landfilled. However, the recycling rates for these residues differ to a great degree between member states, regions and cities. The mobilisation of bio and green waste can be promoted by European recycling targets, but the implementation of these targets requires specific procedures appropriate for different regional and local circumstances. Based on the work within the FP7 project FERTIPLUS, data on the quantity and quality of municipal organic residues is presented and analysed in order to assess the suitability of these residues for the production of biochar and compost. Several factors influencing the mobilisation of these residues are discussed. Next to technological and organisational aspects, specific regional and local circumstances are included in this discussion.
