Putzbrunn, (January 15, 2021) – The Solid Waste Treatment Team of W.L. Gore & Associates (Gore) signed the Manifesto of the international initiative “S.O.S. SOIL – Save Organics in Soil”. This initiative aims to highlight the importance of soil organic matter to encourage policy makers to develop instruments to move Europe towards implementing sustainable, climate proof soil management practice.

Gore welcomes this initiative, that is led by the European Compost Network (ECN) and the Italian Composting and Biogas Association (Consorzio Italiano Compostatori, CIC) and has not only signed S.O.S. SOIL´s Manifesto to demonstrate support, but also contributes through its GORE® Cover business solutions (https://www.gore.com/products/gore-cover-for-organic-waste-treatment) to the initiative´s goals.

High quality composts play an essential role in maintaining, improving and also recovering soil health and substitute synthetic fertilizers. As a major component of Covered Aerated Static Piles (CASP) Systems, GORE® Cover System Technology enables operators of more than 300 installations in 30 countries around the globe to convert more than 4,5 million tons of organic waste into high quality compost, including organic farming grades even.

“Our cover product technology is recognized as Best Available Technique under the European Emissions Directive and through its business, we help make composting a more attractive waste treatment option for communities and private companies. We welcome the initiative of ECN and CIC and contribute not only with our signature but first and foremost through our cover business solutions”, says Thomas Terpetschnig, Product Specialist for GORE® Cover.
