The re-infiltration of biogenic waste products in nature's cycle is a necessary measure of waste management and based on the principle of sustainability. In this diploma thesis it should be detected whether a positive impact on the metabolism of Vicia faba L., especially its ascorbate-glutathione cycle can be constituted with different variations of soil. In order to explore this, biochemical-analytic analyses of Vicia faba L. are conducted: The concentrations of ascorbate, glutathione and cysteine are chromatographically analyzed by HPLC (High-performance liquid chromatography) while the activity of the glutathione reductase is photometrically measured. Recycled construction materials provided by the company BREM as well as ash substrate from biomass power station "Biowärme St. Peter am Kammersberg" are mixed with garden mold and forest soil. They constitute the soil for the growth of Vicia faba L.. Ten different kinds of soil, planted into eight pots each, are prepared, whereas plain garden mold as well as plain forest soil are used as control parameters. All plants are grown under the same conditions in the climate chamber for four weeks. The goal of this diploma thesis was to find out which soil variation fits best the metabolism of Vicia faba L..
