New technology makes nitrogen fertiliser out of thin air
Nitrogen-based fertilisers are a staple of agriculture and horticulture across the world, but synthetic fertiliser is environmentally costly, relying on large amounts of energy and extracted raw materials, and contributing a lot of pollution. A new project Plan2fix is bringing a revolutionary new approach to market: nitrogen-enriched water made using atmospheric nitrogen. The project has patented a technology that uses plasma nitrogen fixation to dissolve atmospheric nitrogen into plasma-activated water, and is now aiming to sell this innovative product in the greenhouse horticulture sector. Plan2fix will provide the agriculture sector with lower cultivation costs, decreased dependency on third parties, ensured availability of fertilisers, and a drastic reduction in emissions.
