20. Marketing tailor made compost and digestate-based products

With the new adopted Circular Economy Package, including the obligation for separate collection of bio-waste by 31st December 2023, markets for recycled organic products have to be created in all Member States. The European Compost Network (ECN) and Vlaco vzw will contribute to the Circular Bioeconomy by organising the workshop ‘Marketing tailor made compost and digestate-based products’. To increase the market potential for bio-based products it is necessary to look continuously at improving the existent compost and digestate quality and expanding the range of compost and digestate (-based) products.  With this workshop we would like to bring together stakeholders from the waste, agricultural and growing media sector, policy makers and researcher to introduce products with added value for the agricultural, landscaping and horticultural market. We will demonstrate how environmental benefits from organic recycled products can be taken into account with a new set-up CO2 calculation tool.
