Details

On 28 February 2006 the Environment Agency held an invited workshop to assess the risks to health from bioaerosols associated with the composting of green waste. The workshop was part of our work programme to develop our requirements regarding bioaerosols, and their potential health effects and risk assessments.

The objectives of the workshop included informing delegates on how the Environment Agency approaches the issues that surround bioaerosols from green-waste composting and to draw attention to some of the research currently sponsored by the Environment Agency in this area. The delegates included UK regulators, academics, composting industry staff and risk assessment contractors.
