Certification Scheme

The Biofertiliser Certification Scheme provides assurance to consumers, farmers, food producers and retailers that biofertiliser is safe and of good quality. Biofertiliser is the name adopted within the BCS for quality digestate which is the by-product from a biogas plant that uses anaerobic digestion to break down organic material left over from food and farm processes.
