This training presents a great strategy that communities, companies and governments should put into the practice right now to increase food produce by more than 200% and polluted sites at the same time. You only need rock dust.
- How to boost food produce by more than 200% with the use of just two natural tools
- How to bring back to like depleted areas and lands, that can be turned to energy crop culture
- How to fight many effects of climate change within the very same natural process
During this training you’ll learn how the energy sector may play a pivotal role in countering detrimental effects of climate change and intense exploitation of natural resources. There are very easy to use and effective natural solutions to recover depleted lands, for bringing them back to agriculture, fuel cropping, forestry and many other useful purposes. This is one the best opportunity to create an “economy of abundance” to boost local and national development in the right way.
First of all this training presents the two most important natural products to be used to counter effects of climate change. They have the capability to bring back to the life wide areas of depleted lands. Volcanic rock dust allows to boost local development where its availability is higher. The other important natural resource is biochar. It is a byproduct of biomass combustion to generate energy. So, we can couple one more time environmental benefits with energy supply. Biochar is beneficial for the soil but also able to sequester carbon on the ground.
About volcanic rock dust, it has to be well prepared, with the right pre-treatment. Particles dimension is a key parameter to care about before the use. This is a very simple step, affordable by everyone, independently on the starting knowledge. This means that by following guidelines provided by this training, everyone (within the energy sector or not) can start implementing a revitalization project for depleted lands, that are no longer productive. A huge success for agriculture, industry, and nature as well.
The quality (meaning properties) and the amount of material to be used play an essential role to the final output. Generally, low amounts of high-quality materials are better. Solubility and pH value are also very important. On the treated area food, fuel crops, trees can be grown without issues. In addition, the expected yield is higher than a normal soil (without addition of these natural products).
After the reclamation of the area, fuel crops can be grown and their yield is significantly higher if compared with “regular” crop lands. After harvesting, such crops are redirected to the following two lines of intervention: natural remediation of energy waste (& emissions) through biomass and energy generation through composting (thermal or biogas). Of course, there is also the opportunity to burn them, but only to recover the byproduct.
So, a new cycle can re-start.
The proper application scheme for volcanic rock dust and also biochar, depending on the starting environmental conditions; in addition, the selection of different volcanic rock types is important to define the final result.
The treated area can be brought back to life and one of the most interesting destinations of use is biofuel cropping; there is a very good project to take as example, which took place in Costa Rica a few years ago, called “food, fuel and income”; that’s exactly what the whole process allows to achieve.
The proposed solution is highly useful for countering many effects of climate change, because both volcanic rock dust and biochar have been proven effective in increasing the sequestration rate of greenhouse gases (mostly CO2) on the ground, especially when applied on crop fields.
This live training focuses the attention on the “AgroEcology Movement” that definitely deserves the greatest attention and belongs to the bigger framework called “Remedial Energy For Agrofarming”. This very special framework presents some among the most surprising alternative uses for agricultural waste and vegetable products. For this particular training, basically everyone can really benefit from that: mostly farmers for sure, but also concerned communities and policymakers. By applying the proposed guidelines, there is in fact the true opportunity to bring back to the life some areas previously depleted and considered no longer able to generate food or income.
If you wish, there is the chance of ordering a customized handbook that covers more deeply a selected issue related to benefits of volcanic rock dust and biochar application. However, if you are looking for a natural, feasible and effective solution to boost your sustainable development, there is no need to look further. This one is the best natural solution you can use at our days.
