Ecological fertilizers not economical
By the middle of the century, the world's population will grow to 10 billion people. A development that goes hand in hand with a growing need for food in the case of at best constant cultivated areas. In order to maintain the necessary high yield per hectare on the more available agricultural land, the areas must be fertilized.
However, mineral fertilizer (man-made, artificial manure), as it is used today, is fraught with numerous environmental problems. Since sustainable, organic fertilizers (= naturally grown, usually from plant-derived fertilizer) can be produced so far only in elaborate, manufactory-like processes and the raw materials are often grown specifically for it, they are many times more expensive than mineral fertilizer.
Due to the special raw material concept of the Biofabrik Green Refinery and the high degree of automation, the production costs for biological fertilizers can be significantly reduced. In the medium term, fertilizers from renewable raw materials can be offered at prices comparable to synthetic, mineral fertilizers.
Nationwide malnutrition despite large increase in food quantity
But already today large parts of the population are malnourished. While malnutrition is the result of malnutrition in the third world, years of malnutrition due to processed foods in the Western world also lead to deficiencies (saturated but not nourished), which are correlated with numerous lifestyle diseases such as high blood pressure, depression and cancer.
