A recent study published by the German humus association, VHE, modelled the accumulation of compost contaminants in soils. The research was carried out by Dr Silvia Lazar and Dr Silke Höke of ahu AG in Germany, who used a mathematical approach to estimate contaminant concentration build up in soils by taking into account the mineral fraction of compost.

An English version of the German study has been published by ECN and is here available.
