Could a co-product from paper recycling help farmers to improve soil health whilst building carbon stocks?
“Soil carbon enables soil to self-structure, and thus increases water infiltration, increase water storage and decreases the risk of flooding,” says Brian Reid, Professor of Soil Science and Associate Dean for Science (Innovation) at the University of East Anglia.
UEA is working with Greenworld Ltd to explore the potential of Paper Crumble (PC) to improve soils and improve the delivery of public goods. The partners are discussing their work at the Innovation Hub.
Brian continues: “We are looking forward to talking to famers and growers about the opportunities to increase soil carbon and achieving Net Zero on the farm to help realise this vision.”
