NOx Conversion

Project description

Growing crops without putting the planet at risk

Intensive agricultural practices pose a serious risk to human health and the planet’s ecosystem. For instance, emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) – poisonous, highly reactive gases – from agricultural soils can contribute to air quality issues. The EU-funded NOx Conversion project will analyse the situation in California, where agricultural soils are a dominant source of NOx pollution. This is based on a bottom-up spatial model of soil NOx emissions and top-down airborne observations of atmospheric NOx concentrations. To reverse this trend, the project will invest in management practices. It is developing a disruptive technology (currently patent pending) that will undergo thorough evaluation in the real environment to prove its efficacy in a quantified manner.
