Characterization of urban composts for ecological agriculture

In collaboration with Biolur, Eneek and Karabeleko, we are currently taking part in a project funded by the Basque Government (BERRIKER Programme) on the physicochemical and microbial characterization of urban composts from Gipuzkoa (Basque Country) for their potential use in ecological agriculture. During this project, the agroecological consequences of the utilization of urban composts will be assessed. Finally, different criteria for their application and utilization will be established. Apart from a traditional physicochemical characterization of these urban composts (including the determination of inorganic and organic contaminants), we will determine a variety of parameters that provided information on the biomass, activity and biodiversity of the microbial communities present in the studied composts.
