Bio-waste: The Valuable Organic Resource in a Circular Economy
Life on earth is dependent on carbon and nutrient cycling. Ecosystems rely upon the availability of organic and inorganic matter for assimilation by living organisms. Besides the continuous delivery of carbon and nutrients, soil organic matter improves the soil structure by increasing the water holding capacity and increasing the living conditions for all organisms in soils.
Humans set the natural balance of the soil carbon cycle under stress by intensive use of land, harvesting plant material for food, feed, and other applications. Mostly, the residues of these activities end up as ‘bio-waste.’
