The Carbon Credit Market was valued at USD 87.9 billion in 2022; US Congress passed a special act to invest $20 billion to support climate-smart agriculture to address climate changes
Neve Yarak, Israel, Dec. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Save Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: SVFD), an agri-food tech leader, previously entered the carbon credit and greenhouse gas emissions markets, following its acquisition of a majority stake in the newly-formed Nitrousink Ltd.(“Nitrousink”) a research and development company using technologies developed at the Agricultural Research Organization – Volcani Institute (the â€œVolcani Instituteâ€), under the leadership of Dr. Dror Minz , PhD in Environmental Microbiology, and the Director of the Institute of Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences at the Volcani Institute.
Nitrousinkâ€™s research is based on a deep understanding of plant root microbiome structure and function. Its solution tailors the natural root microbiome, to improve the abundance and function of naturally occurring novel nitrous oxide and reduce bacteria to minimize the emission of this highly potent greenhouse gas, also involved in ozone depletion from agricultural soils. Nitrousink’s solution is based on active microorganisms which are completely natural (no GMO) and safe to humans, animals, plants and the environment.
According to Global Market Insight , the Carbon Credit Market was valued at $87.9 billion in 2022 and is set to grow at a CAGR of 14.2% from 2023 to 2032.
Furthermore, the US Congress passed the Energy Security and Climate Change Investments in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 , which provides a budget of $20 billion that will be invested in climate-smart agriculture practices.
Nitrous oxide is a chemical compound, an oxide of nitrogen with the formula N2O. Nitrous oxide has significant global warming potential as a greenhouse gas as it is 265 times more harmful to the climate than carbon dioxide (CO2). On a per-molecule basis, considered over a 100-year period, nitrous oxide has 265 times the atmospheric heat-trapping ability of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Nitrousink’s R&D demonstrated positive results identifying and isolating two bacteria species from wheat roots. In a novel discovery, Dr. Minz found these bacteria are naturally capable of reducing N2O emissions under various environmental conditions. One of the bacteria is active under oxygen conditions and reduces emissions by 44%, while the other reduces emissions by 39% under oxygen-depleted conditions. The two bacteria species were grown in a lab and later successfully introduced to greenhouse wheat samples. The implications of these findings appear to be profound and offer a potential way to cut N2O emissions given that approximately 73% of man-made N2O emissions entering the atmosphere are a result of agricultural soil management.
Save Foods will fund Nitrousinkâ€™s research and development and commercialization efforts in an amount of up to $1.2 million over three years, primarily to allow for the expansion and widespread implementation of this innovative technology.
