Fulfil conditions in local authority tenders
Many local authorities require their biodegradable waste treatment contractors to produce Biofertiliser. Such certification enables the input tonnage to the anaerobic digestion process to count towards recycling targets, comply with tender requirements or improve tender scores by producing certified digestate and applying for certification.
Effective quality management system
Certified Biofertiliser signifies that the digestate was produced using an effective quality management system. This provides an assurance that the materials have a consistent quality and are safe and reliable to use.
Producing Biofertiliser means that there’s no longer a need for costly waste regulatory controls on its storage after dispatch and use. Biofertiliser can be spread straight to land, avoiding costly & time consuming spreading deployments or registration of exemptions.
