PAS 100 Compost - the current highest standard of compost derived from waste. Upon successfully reaching this standard, the material is no longer deemed as waste and can be used as a certified compost. The PAS process is very stringent and is limited to source segregated waste. The material is processed under a batch system and to strict criteria, with the limit for contaminants being under 0.25% to make this a very high grade clean compost.
There are various other processes that produce different types of compost which require a series of EA permits, these include a Spreading Permit and Deployment Permit. These permits are applied for on an annual basis and are fully controlled in-house, they also follow the same Duty of Care, audit regime and testing as the waste inputs themselves.This system is thoroughly managed in-house which enables us to offer a complete closed loop solution for the waste streams we handle.
With our in-house technicians writing each application whilst working with the landowners and the EA, we are able to manufacture the materials in large quantities to suit the application. On approval of the deployment, our team will visit the site before, during and after the material is applied, which is done in-house or using our own contractors, this is to ensure the material and its use runs in line with the required specification and its application.
Working with the landowners and being able to show customers the final destination of the material helps us to build solid relationships, this ensures all parties involved have followed best practice and Duty of Care. We work with other companies for the final use of materials and follow Duty of Care guidelines at all times to make sure our partners meet the high standards required.
