WHAT IS COMPOST?

Compost is the result of the organic

breakdown of green and food waste, under

controlled and monitored conditions.

Compost is an important product to the

landscaping industry and can provide

various benefits in projects involving

reclamation, restoration and the

improvement of land. Compost is a source

of organic matter and can improve the

physical and chemical properties of the soil

to which it is applied, enhance plant

growth, stimulate biological activity and

improve resistance to erosion.

BSI PAS 100 compost is ideal because not

only is it a rich source of nutrients, it is also

quality assured and therefore reliable and

consistent. WRAP has identified a number

of producers of BSI PAS 100 compost

spread across the UK.

CONTROL MEASURES

BSI PAS 100 includes controls such as the

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point

(HACCP) measures, to ensure that risks of

adverse impacts to the environment and

human health are minimised.

The BSI PAS100 composting process

eliminates most plant and human

pathogens that may be present in the

feedstock, and quality and regulatory

measures are in place to ensure that it is a

safe and reliable material to use.

Compliance with BSI PAS 100 provides

strict control over chemical and physical

contaminants likely to be present in

compost, for example arsenic, cadmium,

copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, zinc, glass and plastic.

QUALITY COMPOST ACROSS THE UK

BSI PAS 100 sets the criteria for the

production of quality compost that can be

used in land reclamation and provides the

assurance required to users.

In Scotland, compost produced in

compliance with BSI PAS 100 is considered

as fully recovered and therefore is no

longer regarded as a waste material,

provided that a secure market for this

material exists.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland

compost must also comply with the

relevant Quality Protocol to be fully

recovered and not considered as waste.

The Compost specifications for the

landscape industry recommend that

additional requirements to the BSI PAS 100

criteria should be met for different end

uses in order to ensure that the product is

fit-for purpose. These are summarised in

the accompanying Technical Documents.

The Compost specifications for the

landscape industry are currently under

review and a new version will be published

Shortly.

Application of compost to reduce erosion on an engineered slope, Nafferton Farm, Northumberland

The project examines the effectiveness of

compost to stabilise the surface and

subsurface of an engineered slope in order

to both prevent erosion and enhance

vegetation establishment.

Centenary Riverside

An innovative approach was used to

stabilise this clay bank and protect it from

erosion. Compost was used for bank

stabilisation and soil creation. The compost

soil was sown with a fast growing seed mix

to provide vegetation cover to protect the

compost from erosion. Compost socks have

been installed along the riverbank to

protect it from scouring. The compost has

significantly reduced erosion and has

provided the growing medium in which

plants are thriving.
