Net Zero Strategy : reduce 18.4% of Co2 emissions
Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use directly accounts for 18.4% of greenhouse gas emissions. The food system as a whole – including refrigeration, food processing, packaging, and transport – accounts for around one-quarter of greenhouse gas emissions.
What is the problem ?
Promotion of sustainable agriculture is one of the highest priority development goals set by United Nations for achieving the food security to meet the ever-increasing global population food demand, this means that crops must be harvested throughout the winter season and this requires the need for greenhouse heating.
Generally, greenhouses around the world use sunlight to meet their lighting needs for photosynthesis, but they are not ready to use the sun for heat. Rather, they rely on conventional energy sources, such as oil or gas, to produce greenhouse temperatures for winter plant growth. However, solar-powered greenhouses (SGHs) are built to use solar energy for both heating and lighting. Also, these greenhouses reduce the damage caused by excess solar energy from the ambient to the greenhouse during hot sunny periods. A controlled environment is available in these SGHs. The problem is faced when the sun is not shining.
How will Seeds solve this ?
Seeds organic solar technology can provide a solution as it has the potential to absorb in both the heat and visible ranges which means that energy can be harvested even on cloudy days.
