Summary

The use of peat for soil-production creates large climate emissions and threatens vulnerable bog areas where the peat is harvested. At the same time it is a challenge to find a good alternatives that growers can trust. NORSØK is active in this work, and recently arranged a webchat that brought together people from the entire value-chain with growers, waste industry and researchers in order to exchange experience and knowledge.
