Abstract/Contents:"Thirty commercial composts from biogenic wastes and raw materials from vegetable fruit gardens (VFG) were analyzed for heavy metal content. Results obtained were discussed with respect to metal contents for composts from municipal solid waste (MSW), composts from MSW source separation and literature green composts, and the limits for heavy metal contents stipulated by European laws. The data obtained showed that, except for Cd content, the majority of the composts analyzed including MSW source separation and green composts could be considered as compost of very high quality or high quality. At the same time, the majority of composts analyzed must be classified as being contaminated compost or compost of low quality on the basis of their Cd contents. The results suggest that for these composts cadmium contamination of raw materials defined the compost quality and that the legal limits suggestd for this trace element should be reviewed."
