Composting council reveals testing program
U.S. Composting Council has released details of its Seal of Testing Assurance
program. The program is intended to provide consumer confidence in compost
quality by establishing standards that participants in the STA program must
meet. The STA program uses testing and sampling methods outlined in "Test
methods for the evaluation of composting and compost" manual. The manual
was developed with funds partly provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
