What’s the life cycle of our compostable products?
This week our CEO Susanna Carson and Manager of Research & Communications Emily McGill are co-presenting the open source field testing program at BioCycle REFOR17 in Portland, Oregon, this Wednesday, Oct 18.
In case you didn’t know – we’re working to close the loop on our products. Since 2013 we have been testing our certified compostable packaging on-site at real-world compost facilities. We first shared this research in our 5-part blog series “A Compost Story“, and now we’re published in BioCycle magazine’s September 2017 edition. You can read the BioCycle article here.
We tell the story of testing our certified compostable products at a regional, anaerobic digestion, composting facility back in 2014 in partnership with UBC. This was one of three test facilities to enhance the available methods for field testing these products.
Since then, we’ve been partnering with experts and organizations across Canada and the US to bring an open source field testing program to every facility interested in figuring out how these products work in their operations.
