RP2019: Urban composting research symposium: discussion paper

The urban composting research symposium was held at the Hawthorn Arts Centre on Monday 27 August 2018 to showcase the research undertaken as part of this CRC for Low Carbon Living funded project: “Enabling carbon reductions through composting food waste for use in growing food”.

The symposium focused on urban composting solutions, including kerbside collections of food waste for offsite composting and models of on-site composting and onsite pre-treatment for later composting. There is no one-size-fits all and the discussions were framed in terms of type of urban fabric.
