The Opportunity

Through utilising the growing waste stream of biomass by-products to promote the growth of crops, this technology will result in a sustainable substitute for conventional chemical fertilizers.

Wide-reaching positive impacts:

  • Significant reductions in the carbon footprint of the agrochemical industry
  • Close the production loop for biomass to energy generation, reducing dependence on primary fertiliser use
  • Provide a market for bio-energy by-products, which will increase the economic viability of bio-energy schemes
  • Improve soil structure as well as fertility
  • Address resource scarcity issues in relation to macro- and micro-nutrients
  • Provide a low-cost alternative to mineral based land conditioners, which in turn will promote improved food security and competitive food pricing
