Abstract


Composting is a cheap and efficient management approach for recycling organic waste, but also an alternative to landfills. Recycling algae into composts has also proven to be an ecological alternative for reducing beach pollution and water eutrophication. There is a growing interest in the use of algae-based fertilizers as they maintain organic farming and contribute to a significant increase in agricultural productivity. This paper presents the particularities of algae as a raw material for composting, the types of composting methods, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of algaebased fertilizers in terms of agricultural cultivation.
