For compostable plastics to be allowed as an input for organic agriculture, a petition must be filed with the National Organic Standards Board. The ideal petition would identify specific types of compostable plastics so that the allowance will not be limited to only one.

BioCycle magazine, BioCycle.net and BioCycle Conferences are your go-to source for recovering the maximum value out of every ton of organic waste and wastewater generated. BioCycle shows how to process organic residuals — yard trimmings, food waste, woody materials, biosolids, manure, high strength organic wastes, municipal solid waste (MSW), and other source separated feedstocks into value-added products — and create jobs and green enterprises. Products include compost and engineered soils, biogas-derived electricity, vehicle fuels and renewable natural gas. Products that renew agricultural and urban soils, reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
