The development of waste-based soil-substitutes and soil-forming materials (organic and inorganic amendments) is a sustainable and cost-effective option for significant volumes of organic and inorganic wastes produced by various industries whilst conserving natural resources:

Use of land degraded by former industrial and urban activity makes an increasingly important contribution to the expansion of woodland. Trees planted on such sites offer immense social benefits in addition to the possibility of economic activity on formerly unproductive land. This programme supports the related objectives of the English Forestry Strategy and across Great Britain generally.
