Portrait Gallery "Composting"

It is noticeable that the names of people who contributed important research or technological advancement to the development of composting cannot be found today on e.g. Google or are merely mentioned without any reference to composting. By setting up this gallery we intend first to provide a short overview of composting in Germany since 1950 hoping that our fellow researchers will follow and continue this for other countries, and second to introduce people who gave a helping hand to composting and/or shaped it into what it is today, an important technological option of recycling native organic material.
