Daniel Fischer

Agricultural scientist and humus expert
Halle (Saale)
DI (FH) of Landscape Management & Nature Conservation. In his research, Mr. Fischer focus on sustainable land use technologies, resource management and soil amelioration by the application of Terra Preta, a dark, fertile and humus-rich soil with many beneficial features originally created by humans. However, as a main component biochar is required for the generation of Terra Preta. For this purpose, Mr. Fischer has developed a working prototype of a mini pyrolysis-gasifier. With this eco-friendly machine local organic wastes can be easily converted into valuable charred materials. Especially developing countries could profit from this green technology by improving soil quality and agricultural yields.
