Re-Use of Minnesota Waste Material in Sustainably Design Soils: Part 2

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  10/24/2022


Minnesota produces numerous high-volume by-products and waste materials from mineral, forestry, agricultural, and industrial sectors. Reusing or recycling these materials can conserve natural resources while reducing material costs. This research will identify, select, and characterize waste materials, by-products, and commercially available materials available across Minnesota to create engineered soil mixes capable of meeting stormwater retention requirements and supporting native plant establishment. The objective of this project is to create an implementation design guide for statewide, resilient, and sustainable engineered soil mixes providing volume and pollutant load reduction capable of supporting native plant growth.
