Re-use of Regional Waste in Sustainably Designed Soils

The goal of this project is to identify, characterize, and combine regionally available by-products to design soil mixture for site specific requirements. The investigators see potential for manufacturing soil from regionally-generated by-products (solid wastes) to help mitigate soil quality issues while reducing solid waste disposal through beneficial reuse.
