The Climate proof soils by steering soil and residue microbiomes (ClipsMicro) project is based on the central premise that soil microbes play a vital role in carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions. The project aims to enhance stable soil carbon formation and reduce GHG emissions by effectively managing the soil microbiome. To achieve this, an integrated approach will be developed, involving improved soil amendments and strategic cover crop usage. Specifically, the project will focus on enhancing compost properties through biological and mineral amendments and integrating BNI (Biological Nitrification Inhibition) cover crops into cropping strategies. As part of the ClipsMicro project, this review explores the current state-of-the-art knowledge on the use of mineral additions in the composting process to increase organic matter sequestration and the application of biological nitrification inhibition in field conditions.
