The aim of this work is to bring IRDA’s agri-environmental expertise to bear on the challenges associated with the conversion of agri-food waste into biomolecules with potential agricultural applications. Its main objective is to perform screening tests on agri-food waste to determine its suitability for use in agriculture.
From 2018 to 2019
The municipal sector will benefit from IRDA’s expertise to repurpose its residual materials.
The purpose of this project was to field-test pelleted grocery fruit and vegetable waste as a fertilizer or high-carbon soil amendment.
