Renewable Nitrogen Fertilizer

Plantee® is the high yielding cellulose-based based renewable and clean nitrogen fertilizer and soil conditioner that has natural nitrogen, bio-proteins, and naturally occurring iron, zinc, copper, boron, and phosphorous.

Renewable nitrogen fertilizer replaces the non-renewable nitrogen derived from natural gas used to produce urea and DAP fertilizer.

The food we eat depends on the dirtiest sources of nitrogen – natural gas – the raw material for making chemical fertilizers. Natural Gas is a non-renewable resource and generates the greenhouse gas – methane when nitrogen is extracted from it.

Biomass fertilizer replaces chemical fertilizer

The manufacture of chemical fertilizer is an energy-intensive process, consuming non-renewable natural gas and releasing greenhouse gases like Carbon Dioxide, Nitrous Oxide and Methane.

Nitrogen-based fertilizers are made from ammonia, which consumes five per cent of the natural gas produced globally. This quantity of natural gas amounts to two per cent of the total energy consumed globally. Methane is emitted during the production of fertilizer.

The chemical fertilizer run-off from the fields increases the nutrient levels in lakes and rivers and results in a spurt in algal blooms causing marine eutrophication.

These algae may take up all of the oxygen from the water and thus ruin other marine life. The residual nitrate leaches into the groundwater increasing nitrate concentrations above the permissible level.

Urea and DAP fertilizers make soil acidic. Plantee aids soil pigmentation and restores the soil’s natural appearance discoloured by fertilizer.

Plantee increases crop durability and yield

Roy Research and Technology has successfully grown Swarna rice using solely Plantee in Birbhum district of West Bengal, India. This rice was tested and found to have higher starch, carbohydrate and protein content. It also withstood stress situations like flooding and drought.

Plantee protects the plant from bacteria and fungus that cause stem and root rot by building immunity. Warm and wetter weather and flooding increases the spread of fungus and bacteria on plants and crops destroying crop yield.

Plantee produces flowers that stay fresh after cutting much longer and increases the vase life of flowers. Plantee helps the flowering plant bear warmer weather because of climate change.

Biorefining Biomass fertilizer to ethanol

Biomass Fertilizer Plantee’s natural effect on plant cellulose yields higher and better quality bio-mass sugar value for the production of more ethanol from the same quantity of biomass.

If the biomass used to produce ethanol is cultivated with hydrocarbon-based fertilizers, it defeats the purpose of producing renewable energy.

The manufacture of chemical fertilizers consumes about 5 per cent of the natural gas produced globally. The cost of Natural Gas makes up 90% of the cost of producing ammonia – used to make nitrogen compounds used in chemical fertilizers.

Plantee replaces fertilizer nitrogen feed-stock from fossil fuel to cellulosic biomass source to create a true renewable nitrogen resource in the agricultural food chain.

The inputs used to grow the biomass feed-stock to produce ethanol should be renewable to make the whole process is sustainable. Using non-renewable inputs to produce renewable products will cause the same environmental and ethical problems that we have been enduring with conventional agriculture and energy.

Biomass Fertilizer Plantee maintains the principle of the conservation of energy because it transfers renewable hydrocarbons and nitrogen from the biomass raw materials to produce fine high sugar value Biomass feed-stock to produce ethanol.

Renewable Nitrogen Fertilizer Credentials

Plantee is tested by the Bose Institute in Calcutta, India which is sponsored by the Indian Government’s Science and Technology Department and by the Superintendence Company. Plantee is also tested and approved by the Midnapore District Seed Farm and W.B.A.I.C. Farm in Tarakeswar, Hooghly District, West Bengal, India. Plantee is a registered trademark and is an invention under several patents of Roy Research and Technology.

Agriculture and Climate Change

“Climate change will pose sharp risks to the world’s food supply in coming decades, potentially undermining crop production and driving up prices at a time when the demand for food is expected to soar, scientists have found”,  – The New York Times: “Climate Change Seen Posing Risk to Food Supplies”

This quantity of natural gas amounts to two per cent of the total energy consumed globally.

Plantee Renewable Nitrogen fertilizer replaces chemical fertilizers and stops the emission of greenhouse gases emitted during the production of chemical fertilizers.  Plantee biomass fertilizer is a renewable resource and helps reduce global warming.

Agriculture is one of the major causes of pollution. The indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers has not only resulted in reduced agricultural productivity, but also in pollution of groundwater resources and marine eutrophication.  Urea and DAP fertilizers make soil acidic.

Plantee aids soil pigmentation and restores the soil’s natural appearance discoloured by chemical fertilizer over use. The chemical fertilizer run-off from the fields increases the nutrient levels in lakes and rivers and results in a spurt in algal blooms. These algae may take up all of the oxygen from the water and thus ruin other marine life. Also, leaching of the residual nitrate in groundwater has resulted in nitrate concentrations above the permissible level.

Waste to Resource

Roy Research and Technology has invented a technology to recycle waste like asphalt or coal tar and solid waste to make products. Bitumen as asphalt or coal tar is available as bottom waste from petroleum refinery and steel industries. The process recovers hydrocarbons from left over asphaltic tar sand and converts them to products.

Recycle waste from petroleum refinery and steel industry to make :

  1. improving  the flotation and buoyancy of ships
  2. lightweight insulated and  sandwich panel
  3. insulated solar backing
  4. filler material for hollow structural   section
  5. encapsulation of nuclear waste
  6. building insulation
  7. composite material as bulletproof vest
  8. spray blanketing material for coal powder or mineral powder/stone chips during transpor
  9. encapsulation of nuclear solid waste.
  10. road carpeting and improving river side and ocean side embankment.
  11. low-cost energy conservation system  by utilizing agriculture based reactive product for roofing
  12. void filling like filling of steel tubes, channel to improve structural strength and prevent corrosion (this was tested and certified by Govt. of India’s Ministry of Defense.)

The technology was patented and published in the USA, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Japan, UK, Italy, France, Denmark, Brazil, Germany, India and describes the method of utilizing asphalt and coal tar through eco-friendly process.

How to apply Rass-O’-Nil Rust Preventive

The method of applying Rass-O’-Nil® conductive rust preventive on HR and CRCA metal. It is very important to clean and prepare the metal surface properly for better passivation.

Rass-O’-Nil application method for fresh steel:

Step 1: Remove all foreign matter – grit, dirt, cement particles, carbon particles, primer etc by brush. Dust off the loose particles. Wipe the metal surface with a clean cloth.
Step 2: After cleaning the metal surface, mop the metal with a medium density foam roller/section dipped in Rass-O’-Nil to evenly thin film the metal surface. The surface should not be made very wet because this is a nano-coat and excess liquid will be wasted. When the metal surface is dry to touch it can stored for future use.

Points to note:
i) Wear rubber gloves during surface preparation and coating Rass-O’-Nil G.
ii) During spray application the operator must wear glasses to protect the eyes.
iii) Rass-O’-Nil has no instant effect on the skin but wash exposed skin with water
after using Rass-O’-Nil.
iv) Rass-O’-Nil is not inflammable and is not combustible. Store Rass-O’-Nil in a sealed container. Do not add water to Rass-O’-Nil. This will damage the material.
