'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :
Submitted to the Sci. Committee : After the evaluations made by our volunteer assessors, innovations with the strongest impact potential are submitted to the Scientific Committee. The managing directors are responsible for the choice.
The new agritech-culture feeds the world with massive CO2 capture and respect for soil and water.
Intensive cereal farming and livestock breeding pollute the soil and water without being able to feed humanity. They also have a disastrous carbon impact. We are revolutionizing the production of vegetable proteins with a positive environmental impact. CO2 capture: 1ha of photobioreactors = 150ha of forest
Agritech in 3 soilless dimensions. We produce microalgal biomass rich in proteins and essential amino acids, at a productivity/ha 20x more efficient than intensive cereal farming, without polluting the soil and water. And this captures CO2: 1200 tons on average per ha and year
Our microalgal biomass: - breeders, especially cattle with reduction of methane emissions - food industry - chefs - farmers: biostimulant Our production units: - cities and regions: food resilience and respect of the environment (CO2 capture and air and water quality/fight against eutrophication)
1- Cultivated strains (to be patented) 2- Unique industrial process that can be replicated anywhere in the world 3- Industry elements (photobioreactors to be patented) => this combination allows higher productivity and a volume effect with the best quality/price of the market to date
