A new quality protocol on “Poultry Litter Ash – End of waste criteria for the production and use of treated ash from the incineration of poultry litter, feathers and straw”has been published by the Environment Agency (EA) and WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme).
It is applicable in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and sets out the end of waste criteria for the production and use of poultry litter ash from the combustion of poultry litter, feathers and straw. In particular, it sets out maximum limits for trace elements within poultry litter ash (PLA) to be used as fertiliser and specifies the EA sampling guidelines to be followed and specified that all analytical tests must be carried out by laboratories accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 (in the UK accredited by UKAS) for the analytes of interest.
