What's the Problem?
Soil degradation is a global problem caused by human activities such as over-cultivation, deforestation, and overgrazing. This leads to soil erosion, nutrient depletion, and desertification, resulting in reduced crop yields, biodiversity loss, and increased vulnerability to climate change. On top of this, the burning of fossil fuels is leading to an increase in CO2 in the atmosphere, causing climate change. At present, there is no cost-effective, sustainable solution to restore soil that addresses the underlying root cause. Additionally, governments and businesses must reduce their emissions of CO2 to help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
How are they Solving it?
At Caligenia we created a technology capable of increasing crop yield, restoring soils, avoiding CO2eq emissions and obtaining the optimal combination between Biochar and PGPR (plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria), THE BACTERCHAR, for every type of degraded soil, will allow us to: Transform degraded fields into highly productive ones. Improve crop yield by more than 30% with a one-time application. Avoid GHG emissions.
