REAL publishes 'How compostable products are recycled in the UK' report

Posted: 10 May, 2024. Written by Georgia

REAL administers both the CMCS and the Compost Certification Scheme (CCS), a quality assurance and end-of-waste scheme for compost produced on an industrial scale in the UK. Through CCS, REAL collects data on whether certified compost producers accept independently certified compostable liners and/or compostable packaging. 

REAL published a paper sharing this data as of September 2022 (titled 'Composting compostables in the UK') and updated this paper recently using CCS data as of February 2024. The updated paper, presenting an increase in the total number of certified industrial composting sites accepting compostables in the UK, can be found below.
