The Department of Environment and Science (DES) have engaged a company to conduct a critical evaluation of composting operations and feedstock suitability. A requirement for this project is for the company to provide a copy of its draft final phase 2 report to a third party reviewer.
The project will take a holistic view of the composting industry in Queensland and provide expert advice on best practise environmental management for composting operations and the suitability of different waste streams in the manufacture of compost and soil conditioners. It will also provide expert advice in relation to potential adverse consequences from waste suitability determinations and any regulatory change to address these.
The successful supplier will be required to conduct an independent technical review and verification of the draft final phase 2 report produced for the Critical Review of Composting Operations and Feedstock Suitability project (DES18070). This would require the successful supplier to determine if the scope has been met, whether there are any information gaps, statements and recommendations made without enough technical justification. The successful supplier will need to provide a short review document which highlights and provides justification of any identified issues. This document will be provided to the supplier to send to the report writer for them to consider and address in the final phase 2 report.
