Any person or organisation part of the Compost Certification Scheme (CCS) or Biofertiliser Certification Scheme (BCS), or government, is eligible to receive a copy of the project outputs free of charge.
Any person or organisation not part of the CCS, BCS, or government, who would like to gain access to the project outputs will be required to pay a fee.
The cost of access to the Digestate ‘data pack’ and Valorisation Report is the total cost of the second project of the Research Hub, divided by the number of operators under CCS/BCS at the end of 2020 (the year the project was commissioned).
This sum calculates the amount of Research Fee each scheme operator paid towards the second project of the Research Hub.
SUM: [Total cost of project] / [Total number of CCS/BCS participants]
SUM: [£57,910] / [176+92] = £216
The fee is one-off and once paid, the recipient will receive the Digestate ‘data pack’ and Valorisation Report in PDF format via email. The recipient will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement before the project outputs are issued to them.
