How has Composting Grown and What is its Future?


The word “sustainability,” is on the tip of everyone’s tongues lately. Commerce and business worldwide are looking for better and cheaper ways to keep business viable into the future. Industries like agriculture, architecture, civic design, and others are starting to catch on to the cost-effective and high-performing product that is compost.

Today’s guests are Ryan Cerrato, VP of Product Marketing for Denali Water Solutions, and Rod Tyler, President & Owner of Green Horizons Environmental. They talk about how the compost industry has evolved, where it is innovating, and the surprising use-cases that make compost a super substance.

Composting, in short, is “nature’s oldest form of recycling,” said Tyler. When organic compounds decompose, the resulting product is a nutrient-rich fertilizer. The value of compost has increased tremendously over the past 30 years. Demand is up, agree Cerrato and Tyler. The practice of composting takes much-needed pressure off landfills. It also helps grow vegetation and kills bacteria, ending the transfer to future generations. The goal of compost is to stay as local to the composting facilities as possible, making the industry’s carbon footprint remarkably small. The sustainable mission of the compost industry is attracting bright young minds eager to start a career that is in harmony with Earth’s natural sciences.

What’s more, composting is expanding into new high-value markets. Engineers and architects are seeing the benefit of incorporating it into their designs, and are returning to the reliable product time and time again. From urban farming to erosion control, compost has many use-cases. Young minds and innovators are continuing to find new markets and products that benefit from the sustainable commodity.

In today’s economy where many industries are currently in question, composting remains one of Earth’s oldest and most reliable practices, producing healthy, natural vegetation in a holistic life cycle.
