Saving the Environment

 

The Mission

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.

Nitrogen Waste

55% 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 30%, which drastically reduces nitrogen pollution.

Sand Erosion Monitoring

Coastal erosion is causing property loss, groundwater pollution and increases flooding, which consequentially costs countries billions of dollars. Vultus applying its remote sensing and GIS competencies to bring an integrated coastal monitoring solution to market, together with world-leading erosion experts and several coastal authorities, to increase our ability to deal with rising sea levels and other changes in hydrology stemming from global warming.
