On the 15th of October, during the Italian National Final in Bologna, NitroZeo has been selected as one of the three best projects, becoming one of the finalists of the CleanLaunchpad Grand EU Final, which will take place on October 29th.
What is Nitrozeo about?
Our business idea consist in a new product, NitroZeo, to grant a more sustainable agriculture. NitroZeo is an innovative, completely natural, mineral matrix for cultivation substrate or agricultural soils which allow gardeners and cultivators to:
– apply a reduction in chemical fertilizers and irrigation water up to 50%;
-obtain an increase in yield of about 20%;
– protect the environment from Nitrogen pollution and by consequences decrease N2O emission from agricultural soils.
What are your expectations of the Climate-KIC’s Innovation Festival?
We think that our business can really achieve the goal, especially, we are sure that it can make agriculture a more sustainable activity. We hope to transmit this message to the jury and to all the people attending the CleanLaunchpad Grand EU Final.
As geologists, we love the Earth and want to contribute to its protection from pollution and exploitation. Nowadays, many humans activities, including agriculture, are compromising the environment; with the application of our research, we believe that it is possible to decrease the impact of agricultural practices making it more sustainable and environmental friendly.
