Biomass Fertilizer Plantee’snatural effect on plant cellulose yields higher and better quality biomass 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 inputs used to grow the biomass should be renewable so that 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 keeps to the spirit of the principle of the conservation of energy because it transfers renewable hydrocarbons and nitrogen from Biomass raw materials to produce fine high sugar value Biomass feedstock to produce ethanol.
“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”
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.
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.
Plantee increases crop durability and yield and can be the answer to world hunger:
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.
