GROW on 2012
The garden trade fair in Cologne – took place from 2 to 4 September this year. The key future-oriented topic of “sustainability” found its place at this year’s spoga+gafa in the “Prospect Park,” among other places. Biowert was represented here too with AgriPlastBW. Visitors were offered information and inspiration on sustainable materials for the gardening market.
Recently discovered in the German-language article on Wikipedia about grass: our company, Biowert, is mentioned in a prominent position!
(...) The material use of grass, on the other hand, is rare. Thus, for example, Biowert Industrie GmbH is the only company worldwide to manufacture plastic composites suitable for injection moulding from meadow grass (...) (Translation of German text)
The new 2012 harvest is chaffed in the field. Then it is ensilaged at Biowert’s plant.

Wir steigern das Bruttosozialglück*
New publication from Herder!
More and more people share the sentiment that a society based on growth and size, acceleration and a consumption orientation is not sustainable, that gross national product should not be the only factor that counts, but also gross national happiness*. We are searching for alternatives, for role models.
Annette Jensen took up the search and met many impressive people and made many amazing discoveries.
...including Biowert in Brensbach.
Information about the book
From the Bronze Age
Energy-saving wall from the Bronze Age discovered “(...) The walls of the huts were comprised of two wattled walls erected at a distance from each other; hay had been stuffed into the gap between them, about 10 cm thick. (...) The imprints of the stalks on the high-fired daub put us on the track of the energy-saving wall from the Bronze Age.” (Translation of German text) Excerpt from the website of energy-saving drive of the Environment Ministry of the State of Hessen: Hessische Energiespar-Aktion
A fertiliser, AgriFerBW, is also a by-product from the Biowert production process. Our photo shows one of “our” farmers from the countryside surrounding the Brensbach plant spreading AgriFerBW on his meadows. The meadow grass harvest is used in its turn to manufacture Biowert products.
On the website of charitable foundation Futurzwei , Annette Jensen reports on the career of Michael Gass and on Biowert in the form of an amusing abstract. Please disseminate this article using the link on the page!
