Ready to Get Your Compost On!
This year’s Annual Compost and Composting Mega-Conference and Trade Show hosted by the US Composting Council brings the theme Renew and Regenerate to the desert in Phoenix, Arizona.This week long event is designed to show case new developments in organics recycling, compost manufacturing, and compost utilization for the betterment of society and the environment.Whether you are interested in the latest technology and equipment used at large scale composting operations, educational and technical sessions on new markets and applications for compost use, compostable plastics, new environmental research on compost use and water quality, or new policies and infrastructure programs helping to increase organics recycling and use, there is a little something for everyone.
As one of the largest compost users in North America this event (and host organization) is critical to Filtrexx’s past success and our future growth.This is where we interact with many of our suppliers, often find new ones, and share with the industry new developments Filtrexx is researching or commercializing in compost used for erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. We have strong roots with this industry, as our success is a shared one, so we look forward to this annual event unlike any other.Just as our technology is used to regenerate disturbed soils and landscapes from coast to coast, we hope to meet you in Phoenix to both share and learn how recycled organics can really push the Renew and Regenerate envelope in 2019.
