Carbon Farming went on stage in Germany
The international Congress "ECO-innovations from biomass" in Papenburg, organized by the Carbon Farming project partner 3N Competence Center (https://www.3-n.info/), was a great opportunity to spread the ideas of carbon farming among the agricultural community. More than 220 experts, mainly from Germany and the neighboring Netherlands took part in that congress, six of them involved in the Carbon Farming project. There was one session called "New line of business systemic soil improvement“ where Roel Clement explained the Carbon Farming project, including the news about the co-operation between Friesland and Kaindorf (Austria) (see: https://www.omropfryslan.nl/nieuws/849110-friezen-doen-inspiratie-op-oostenrijk-strijd-tegen-co2-uitstoot). In addition, some practical approaches to increace humus content in soils were presented:
- Certificate trading with humus increase in Austria (https://www.oekoregion-kaindorf.at/humusaufbau.95.html)
- The AKRA-system – using soil nutrients more effiently (https://www.duenger-akra.at/en/)
- Regional Silphium energy – as a raw material and product concept (https://www.donau-silphie.de/)
The congress was a great opportunity to collect ideas for carbon friendly supply chains and to create new networks.
