La correcta gestió dels residus orgànics és un dels principals reptes actuals a la Unió Europea, en resposta al fort increment en la seva producció en les darreres dècades. Les creixents limitacions en la incineració i el dipòsit en abocador de residus orgànics ha conduit cap a un increment en el reciclatge en el sòl d'aquests residus en forma d'esmena orgànica, perfilant-se aquesta com la principal via de gestió actual i futura. [...]
Correct organic wastes management is one of the main challenges in the European Union given its production increase in the last decades. Increasing limitations to organic waste incineration and landfilling, together with its fertilizing potential, has lead to their recycling as soil amendment. [...]
