What are the advantages of composting?
Firstly, it reduces the amount of waste and greenhouse gas emissions by avoiding the decomposition of organic waste in landfill sites. It also reduces dependence on chemical fertilisers for soil and plants by using compost as fertiliser. With this project, Infralobo aims to valorise organic waste and prevent it from being discarded in the general waste stream. The separation of bio-waste is not yet a habit in the routine of the Portuguese, but from 1 January 2024 its selective collection and recycling at source will be compulsory.
