20% and 30% compost mixed with site materials have successfully produced topsoil
The EU has set a target of 20% energy from renewable sources by 2020. To contribute towards this an increase in the production of biomass resources for heat, power and transport is required.
The two main perennial energy crop species planted on a significant scale within the UK are miscanthus and willow. Energy crops are mainly cultivated on agricultural land but can be grown on brownfield or marginal land, providing suitable preparation is undertaken.
PAS 100 compost can be used to improve the land and support crop growth.
