Terra Preta is bio-coal, which contributes to the preservation and regeneration of soil quality. The pyrolysis system used to produce the coal is fed with harvesters, micro-organisms, and yeast, creating a low-cost, effective „superhumus“ that can be used to process the fields. This fixes both carbon and stores water and nutrients.
Further information about Terra Preta can be found on the website of our project partner „RecyCoal“.
