Digestate and compost as fertilisers: Risk assessment and risk management options

This is the final report for a project on “Digestate and compost as organic fertilisers – Risk assessment and risk management options” (reference FC/2015/0010 – SR3 under Framework Contract ENV.A.3/FRA/2015/0010), prepared by Wood with partners Peter Fisk Associates and Ramboll for the European Commission, DG Environment.

The aim of the project was to prepare an environmental and human health risk assessment and a risk management options analysis (RMOA) to provide a sound basis for decision making on the need to propose any regulatory measures to control the risks associated with contaminants in compost and digestate used as a fertiliser and soil improver. This included a socio-economic analysis of the impacts of possible risk management action.
