Recultivation of forests
The Krohn Milling Cutter is able to mill large areas after forest
fires. The remaining stumps are shredded into small pieces and worked
into the soil down to a depth of one meter. Recultivation can start
This function alone bear enormous economical potential.
Prevention of forest fires
Brushwood and other plants are cut into small pieces and are entirely
worked into the soil.
In times of increasing numbers of forest fires the demand for this
use is extremly high.
The Krohn Milling Cutter can quickly cut fire prevention corridors
During large fires without the machine such containment is hardly
possible. The areas are too vast and fire fighters often still work
with hatchet and shovel.
The Krohn Milling Cutter can revolutionize fire suppression.
The Krohn company proved this near Weisswasser, Germany during a huge
The machine cut a corridor of a width of 60 m. The spreading of the
fire was prevented successfully.
Land reclamation in deserts
and contaminated areas
The Milling Cutter can work thick layers of contaminated sewage sludge
about 1 m into the soil. This process produces a fertile surface substratum.
At the sme time it reduces the concentration of heavy metal or other
After this procedure imediate planting is possible.
The Technical University of Berlin and the Humboldt-Unversität Berlin
proved this in combined studies. An additional expertise by Prof.
Bennecke, Goettingen University, certifies these potentials.
These studies relate to a large scale experiment on the so called
´Rieselfelder´ near Berlin which were highly contaminated
with heavy metal. After the work with the Krohn Milling Cutter in
1998 all 14 hectares have turned into flourishing landscapes.
The Krohn Milling Cutter is able to cut a 1 m deep alignment into
the ground. This is possible even under most difficult terrain conditions
and even with solidly frozen soil.
The shortly finished pipeline connection between Siberia and western
Europe could only be established with great financial and strenuous
The Krohn Milling Cutter could have done this work more effectively.
Renewal of plantations
Usually old plantations are burned down. With the Krohn Milling Cutter
these plantations can comfortably be worked into the soil. Precious
biomass is preserved.
Consequently these areas profit from far richer fertility.
