The ReCon Soil Toolkit
Reconstructed Soil Factsheets Three factsheets detailing the physical, chemical and microbial properties of the three ReCon Soil recipes.

ReCon Soil and DoW CoP Briefing Short form summary document introducing the work of ReCon Soil and how it can fit within existing soils reuse guidance in England and Wales.
DoW CoP Guidance Bulletin 3  This bulletin serves to provide the reader with a summary of the Definition of Waste: Development Industry Code of Practice (DoW CoP) (CL:AIRE, 2011), its purpose and application and a reminder of the importance and value of managing soil sustainably.   

Protocol for assessment of waste materials for use in reconstructed soils

Guidance document on considerations to be made prior to reconstruction and deployment of soils.  
Materials reuse flow diagram Flow diagram showing materials reuse for construction projects in England and Wales  
Is my soil a waste? Decision flow diagram Decision flow diagram to determine whether soils are likely to be a waste.  
Register of Materials User Guide User guide for the Register of Materials, the service that facilitates connections between Donor and Receiver sites to enable reuse.
Carbon ReConer© Soil Recipe Design Tool Tool in Excel that enables users to simulate the carbon stability profile of their reconstructed soils by combining proportions of assessed candidate materials. A manual for the use of this tool is included on sheet 2 of the document. Further information about the assessment of the materials can be found in the Factsheet - Carbon stability in ReCon Soil component materials

Factsheet - Carbon stability in ReCon Soil component materials This factsheet accounts the carbon stability profiles of two reference materials (cellulose and lignin) and 31 candidate component materials with potential to be used to construct soils.  
Factsheet - Carbon storage potential of ReCon Soil constructed soils This factsheet provides the carbon storage data for three ReCon Soil constructed soils. The carbon storage potentials of these soils have been benchmarked against native ‘natural’ soils.  
Paper - A Life Cycle Assessment for Reconstructed Soil Life Cycle Assessment including tables of impacts for soil components, soil amendments, transport and other machinery.
Life Cycle Assessment: A step-by-step guide to estimating environmental impacts A step by step guide to enable industry users to produce a Life Cycle Assessment on the reconstruction and reuse of their own soils.  
Cost Benefit Analysis: A step-by-step guide to estimating economic impacts A step by step guide to enable industry users to produce a Cost Benefit Analysis on the reconstruction and reuse of their own soils.
Case study - Reconstructed soils from waste - a field study at The Lost Gardens of Heligan Case study on the deployment of reconstructed soils alongside alternative soil preparation methods at a public demonstration plot.
