If a product genuinely has this certification the Seedling Logo must always be printed together with the certificate number as above. Furthermore the certificate number must begin with 7P. This shows that the whole product has been tested and not just one of its components.
If incorrectly certified products are industrially composted, the digestate can only be regarded as a waste product and therefore the food waste collected cannot be counted towards the Local Authority’s recycling targets
Should you have any doubt that a product genuinely has the certification please contact Gordon Thompson at The Renewable Energy Association on +44 (0)20 7925 3570 or ring our freephone number when we will be pleased to pass on your concerns.
