'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 :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
68 assessments

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.

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Inaccessible fertilisation / Pollution due to fertilisation / Droughts / Poor soil quality / Weakening of plants (disease/nutrient content) / CO2: 1 ton of biochar : 2.5t CO2 equivalent

How is the problem solved?

Biochar is a concentrated organic carbon. As a soil-enriching agent, it contributes to the development of food sovereignty by proposing a local and circular model of interdependencies on agricultural fertilisation. The formula is age-old: DEMIO extracts carbon from plant residues, biochar is mixed with organic waste; after a few weeks, we obtain a soil-enriching agent that brings soils back to life and limits agricultural pollution.

What is the customer target?

Composting facilities / Wood energy facilities / Agricultural cooperatives

How is this solution different?

A rustic machine with an autonomous energy supply for a model that is scalable and aimed at those managing raw materials. The aim is to provide accessible biochar at a local level for market gardening, viticulture, and polluted soils
