On the eve of EcoFest 2019, the organizers asked the guests to bring 2-3 kilograms of soil from their territories for a special Bank of live soils and soil microorganisms, in which it is planned to collect the maximum variety of samples from different regions of the world. This Bank is located on the territory of EcoTechnoPark, and it is here that they will work on the creation of a unique relic humus that can be used to restore all types of soil, including desert sands. Humus is an organic substance of the soil, the basis of its fertility.
Therefore, we asked to take soil from the places where it is untouched by plowing, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. The soil should be of natural moisture (not dried), with all the natural microflora and microfauna, bugs and worms, roots and seeds of plants, etc., because, for example, about a trillion microorganisms of several thousand species live in 1 kg of black soil.
In the agricultural research laboratory of SkyWay Technologies Co., they have already identified about a thousand species of valuable groups of soil microorganisms from soil samples brought from Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. They are used to produce humus, because restoration of natural soil fertility with the help of relic humus is part of SkyWay concept and one of the priorities for string transport creators.
Guests who arrived to EcoFest 2019 responded and brought with them about 90 samples of soil from different parts of Italy, the Czech Republic, Russia and even Ireland. You can see the full list of places below.
Let us explain why it is needed
Anatoly Yunitsky has developed a technology that allows to combine power engineering with chemistry and biology to increase the amount of natural substances and organisms. So, if you combine the industrial production of relic humus from brown coal and shale with power generation, you can get the necessary amount of raw materials for the revival of soil fertility. And if you also transform power generation, you will be able to minimize its harmful impact on the environment.
For example, the waste from the combustion of coal at TPP will be used for the production of humus, which will be added to the soil around and ensure its fertility. A thermal waste will be directed to heating of agricultural greenhouses. Thus, it will be possible to use traditional coal-fired power plants to make centers of blooming oases, where infrastructure will be served with SkyWay transport systems.
Today it is not only an innovative environmental solution, but an ambitious business project worth hundreds of billions dollars. In the future, when the need for transport of the past generation finally disappears, the technologies developed by SkyWay will allow to free and restore the dead land buried under asphalt and rails by people. Giving nature more than we have to take from it is one of the basic principles in Anatoly Yunitsky’s ideology and SkyWay.
