After first promising results out of our field test with the soil-improvement product SoilBack we initiated a pilotstudy for industrial open biocomposting. We found a partner in the very successfull city of Leer in Ostfriesland / Germany.
We setup 4 huge earth heaps. Each about 165m³. 2 consist of 100% green biological waste und 2 mixed with cutted brushwood. From each type we added one heap with 5kg / m³ of Soilback. Every 3 weeks the heaps are repositioned. First results are very positiv.
Please see below the findings.
For the future we see possible new fields of application:
- Safe chemical fertilizers in traditional agriculture with identical harvest
- Change traditional agriculture to pure biological agriculture -> safe time in the transition period
- repair overfertilized soils and recultivate desert land for agriculture purpose
