The international journal “Ecological Engineering” has just published a very interesting article.
The article is entitled: “Tree growth and macrofauna colonization in technosols constructed from recycled urban wastes”. It is co-authored by Charlotte Pruvost and Thomas Lerch (at the Institut d’Ecologie et des Sciences de l’Environnement de Paris, Sorbonne University, CNRS, UPEC, Paris 7, INRA, IRD).
The subject of the article is how to use technosols to provide sustainable alternatives to the large-scale importation of topsoil, in view of the increasing need to ‘green’ the cities. It is a research topic already explored by Charlotte Pruvost in a CIFRE thesis supervised by Thomas Lerch and funded by ECT.
