Biocarbon Webinar: Compost for Rebuilding Soil Carbon
For nearly 30 years, the compost industry has been keeping organic waste out of landfills, which reduces the amount of methane gas emitted by landfills. Climate scientists have long recognized this as a tool to help fight climate change. But the IPCC also warns that composting done poorly can lose its climate benefit. And surprising findings from recent experiments suggest applying compost to soils actually sets off a chain reaction of carbon sequestration. The industry clearly must grow if we are to continue rebuilding soil and helping the climate.
Frank Franciosi, Director of Composting, Novozymes (and Past President of the United States Compost Council) will explain how all this composting helps the climate and the soil, give us an update on the status of the industry, and suggest where we might be heading next.
