This meeting aims to introduce delegates to the WRAP Good Practice Guide: Using PAS 100 compost in landscape and regeneration projects, and to provide a forum for scientists and stakeholders to discuss recent developments in compost production and application. It is being organised by Zero Waste Scotland and the British Society of Soil Science (BSSS).

It will be held at the James Hutton Institute’s Dundee site, with a trip to a field site where WRAP funded slope stabilisation trials have successfully demonstrated that using quality compost on gradients positively affects both physical stability and plant growth, with reduced erosion and no negative environmental effects.

Registration is free for members of BSSS and costs £20 for non-members (£10 for students). Attendees can register online at the BSSS website.
