This Keep America Beautiful webinar series will bring together businesses, consumers, corporations, elected officials, and more, as well as Keep America Beautiful representatives to explore what a transition to zero-waste communities can look like. The series will continue the conversation that began at the Keep America Beautiful annual Vision for America event in 2020, which explored the vision around re-defining communities and how that can look in a waste-free world.

With all the buzz in the news about carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions and soil health, it is imperative for compost operators, compost marketers, municipalities, and consultants to understand where composting and compost itself fit into climate change issues. Composting can be a critical component in addressing global climate change.
This webinar will cover the carbon cycle as it relates to composting organic wastes, and the sequestration of carbon in soils when finished compost is applied back to the land. The webinar will discuss factors that affect the ability of soils to sequester carbon from composts, as well as the effect of that sequestered carbon to promote soil health, and will discuss current methods for quantifying soil carbon, and its benefits in compost-amended soils. We will cover some potential carbon debits, such as methane and nitrous oxide emissions, that may need to be controlled during composting to ensure the maximum benefit of composting to composters’ total carbon footprint. Finally, the webinar will briefly discuss some of the existing models for estimating greenhouse gas debits and credits from the composting process and from compost use.
