THE GOAL: ZERO WASTE
With partner facilities nationwide, CMA provides real-world support and information on how compostable products work in actual facilities.
HOW CAN CMA HELP?
CMA has developed a MANUFACTURER to MANUFACTURER engagement space, creating the most practical model for advancing the use of compostables and their acceptance into industrial compost facilities. This is accomplished through mutual information sharing, “pile to lab” technical discussions, and specialized field work. CMA’s philosophy is to work as solution strategists in partnership with compost facilities and product manufacturers to ensure all aspects of employing compostables work for all stakeholders.

OUR PROCESS

As cities, businesses and residents strive for zero waste, the use of compostable food service ware is increasing. To accomplish higher food waste diversion and minimize contamination in urban feed stocks, CMA and its affiliated members offer a program of technical review and field testing of compostable products to determine their feasibility as a feed stock when shipped to fully permitted industrial composting facilities.
