Session 4: Environmental impacts and health risks associated to the use of compost in agriculture.
This session will focus on the environmental aspects as well as the health risks associated to the composting process itself and the use of compost in agriculture (fate of persistent pollutants, volatile organic compounds, bioaerosols, human and plant pathogens, etc). This session will also include contributions dealing with the impact of composting on climate change in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. And this session will also look into the challenge and possible solutions and novel approaches to overcome unwanted impacts.
