Ralf Otterpohl is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology in Germany.
Since 1998 he has been director of the Institute of Wastewater Management and Water Protection, which researches reuse-oriented sanitation concepts for both rural and urban contexts. He won his doctorate in civil engineering at RWTH Aachen for research on mathematical modeling and computer simulation of large waste-water treatment plants. Dr. Otterpohl is Chairman of ZERI (Zero Emissions Research & Initiatives) Deutschland, which views waste as a resource and seeks regenerative waste solutions inspired by nature's own design principles. He is also co-owner of the consultancy Otterwasser GmbH, which specializes in innovative sanitation concepts, and co-founder and co-chair of the International Water Association specialist group, 'Resources Oriented Sanitation'. Dr. Prof. Otterpohl's current research is focused on the rediscovery of Terra Preta Sanitation as it was practiced for thousands of years in the Amazon. He considers this model for the conversion of bio-waste and human excreta, with the addition of biochar, into highly fertile soil, as the most successful system of waste management, sanitation and agriculture of all time. Dr. Otterpohl has started to develop a social entrepreneur's network which promotes increased local productivity and water quality through soil improvement brought about by Terra Preta Sanitation enhanced by plant diversity and the application of permaculture principles.

Ralf Otterpohl studied civil engineering, specializing in water, waste water and solid waste management.
He was a founder of Atterwasser GmbH, consultant of a firm en Lübeck, Germany, specializing in ecological sanitation and the computer simulation of waste water treatment plants. In 1998 they designated him as the director of a municipal and industrial investigative institute of waste water management, and professor at TUHH, Science University of Hamburg-Harburg, Germany. He is a professor and leader of waste water economics. He is a technician in the field of municipal and industrial work at the University of Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH). He is a member on the board of directors of ZERI Germany. He introduced the ZERI courses of international engineering masters, and is the promoter of creative thinking on the basis of a better understanding of physics. He is especially interested in the theoretical works of Victor Schauberger and Paul Schatz, and frequently undertakes great experiments in his laboratories in Hamburg. These experiments are a collaboration of researchers of the University of Stuttgart and are focused on the vortices and their cleaning ability using the forces of gravity, pressure and the effects of water density at low temperatures.
