|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.
Sustainable soil management during construction stockpiling – Bicton field trial
|Case study on the impact of soil management and stockpiling on soil quality, structure and biodiversity.

|Study on the use of electro-kinetic remediation of dredged sediments and the impact on their subsequent use as a plant growth medium.
Soil sensor deployment protocol leaflet
|Summary leaflet for sensor technologies and their application through various stages of the development and construction.
Soil sensor protocol poster
|Thought provoking poster highlighting uses of soil sensor technology, and their importance in managing soil as a resource.
