'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.
Ready-to-use installation of equipment to produce biochar for soils and for food production
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
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.
Composting facilities / Wood energy facilities / Agricultural cooperatives
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
