Session 3: Alternatives to compost

Composting is a great way to convert organic waste into valuable products with direct application in agriculture. But what if there are other opportunities to convert organic waste into other valuable products, such as biogas, biochar and organo-mineral fertilizer? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Are there market opportunities for them? In this third session of the Compost Dialogues, we will dive deep into this discussion in an interactive and dynamic session with experts across the globe.
