welcome to the recently launched internet portal on the new Terra Preta.
We are a group of experts dedicated to the rediscovery and reactivation of the »Terra Preta do Indio«, an ancient and man-made type of soil in the Amazon.
Through years of extensive laboratory research and trial tests, we have succeeded in developing a sustainable system of land use. It has all the characteristics of the native Terra Preta; to some extent, it even outranges it. The invention is so trend-setting that it well deserves the term »the gold of the earth«.
Currently, a consortium of the companies »juwi« and »areal« are working together with the co-inventor Joachim Böttcher on the establishment of the Terra Preta sales company. It attends to the comprehensive extension of the new Terra Preta, the potentials of which – ranging from closing cycles of materials to the increase of the agri- and horticultural productivity without mineral fertilization – are to be made usable worldwide as soon as possible.
This internet portal will keep you updated on the current status of our work and research, for instance, on the construction and initiation of the world’s first Terra Preta plant in Morbach in the Hunsrück.
Dear readers, allow the following pages to put you under the spell of »the gold of the earth«.
