Airy yield

Sustainability

Biowaste makes for good fertiliser.

CO², meanwhile, is used in greenhouses, because it accelerates the process of photosynthesis, and helps plants grow up to 50% quicker.

Now, a startup from the Ukraine has built a machine that extracts CO² from the surrounding air and diverts it to greenhouses.

The best thing: the gas is ‘harvested’ locally. Meaning no lengthy transport routes or expensive liquefaction. A ton of the startup’s CO² is also significantly cheaper to buy.

In addition, the technology uses no harmful pollutants, is emission-free and 100% safe to use. Just the thing for environmentally-conscious farmers looking to increase their yield.

Did you know? CO² extracted from the air is already used to make vodka and aviation fuel.
