Soil Infographic Unearths Vital Contributions and Status of Life-Sustaining Resource
With an impact around the globe, and as a cornerstone of sustainable communities, soil resources and developments require more attention and care as they continue shaping our future.
When it comes to resources that impact a wide range of human activity, soil is one of the most understated among them. Much more than providing solid ground, it is connected with many key drivers that make human life possible.
Did You Know?
Soil is the basis for food, feed, fuel and fibre production and for services to ecosystems and human well-being. It is the reservoir for at least a quarter of global biodiversity, and therefore requires the same attention as above-ground biodiversity. Soils play a key role in the supply of clean water and resilience to floods and droughts. The largest store of terrestrial carbon is in the soil so that its preservation may contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation. The maintenance or enhancement of global soil resources is essential if humanity’s need for food, water, and energy security is to be met.
Supporting and developing Sustainable Agriculture is among Team Gemini’s primary endeavors. We take a multipronged approach to addressing challenges associated with soil, including revitalization of drought-plagued agriculture areas, separating sulfuric acids and phosphorous from liquid manure, eliminating existing sludge lagoons, reducing CO2 exposure into the atmosphere, and significantly reducing odor penetration on animal farms. Additional practices include water conservation and treatment that supports strained water levels, as well as advanced greenhouses which minimize the burden on soil while maximizing production of various foods. Team members like Artigianfer, A3-USA, and VISCON Group all contribute technologies to treat resources efficiently throughout the year.
Beyond conservation, Team Gemini also examines current industry practices to help eliminate harmful and counterintuitive treatment of waste. Most industries follow outdated practices of treating their waste, which continues putting a burden on water, soil, and other life- and business-sustaining components of our environment. Through anaerobic digestion and add-on technologies provided through Team Gemini and our partners, we’re able to turn waste into a multitude of resources such as electricity, thermal energy, grade-A compost and liquid concentrated fertilizer, as well as a range of biofuels. Rather than have waste pollute groundwater and soil, why not have it become a resource that contributes to a healthy Triple Bottom Line?
