New R&D report - quality testing of compost samples
11 June 2015

A trial was undertaken by Kawerau-based Plateau Bark to see if compost could be made using reject fruit (and associated debris) mixed with pulp waste from the Norske Skog Tasman Ltd pulp and paper mill.

The compost tested 'not detected' for Psa-V and kiwifruit seed was destroyed during the composting process.
