Project: Integrated and interdisciplinary research towards objective evaluation methods for the determination of maturity, hygienisation and quality of compost
- project duration
- 01-JAN-04 – 31-DEC-05
- The aim of this research is to develop methods for evaluating compost quality: (i) maturity by testing parameters such as oxygen consumption and microbial diversity. (ii) hygienisation by determining the presence of plant, animal and human pathogens. (iii) environmental safety by determining phytotoxicity levels.
