Saving the Environment
Vultus mission is to eliminate waste in farming. This will significantly reduce the negative environmental impact of farming, and ensure our ability to feed the world. Our main product, nitrogen recommendations, directly targets this mission, whilst several other projects help reduce and even revert environmental damage. Such projects include combating coastal erosion, toxic algae blooms, and drought through remote sensing and decision support.
Over 60% of nitrogen fertilizers go to waste, whilst being the most used fertilizer with the largest potential to pollute. This is causing huge emissions of Nitrous Oxide, a greenhouse gas 298 times more potent than CO2. Currently, even 7% of Sweden's total CO2 emission from Nitrous Oxide from farming. Furthermore, a large amount of nitrogen leaches out into our lakes and rivers, causing eutrophication, toxic algae blooms, and acidification. With our nitrogen analysis, it is possible to reduce nitrogen use by up to 40%, which drastically reduces nitrogen pollution.
Sand Erosion Monitoring
Drought is affecting billions of people worldwide. Around 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated. Vultus remote sensing talents are once again being applied to aid world-leading experts in wetland preservation to build a decision support to both preserve the environment, and most efficiently distribute water within communities.
