Our mission is to implement a Sustainable cycle through Renewable energy systems through bio-chars for long-term healthier agricultural land for future generations.
The RHAP (Renewable Healthy Agro Partners ) team is a collection of two Young vibrant Students/ Entrepreneurs who are in the process of implementing a revolutionary system combining Renewable energy with Agriculture for future health of their country. We cannot feed the 9 billion people in 2050 with the current practices in agriculture. Sustainability is the way !! By taking advantage of the waste that we produce. we can reuse this waste and produce even more food. The RHAP(Renewable Healthy Agro Partners ) team Objectives are : 1) Maintaining Soil health is presented as a foundation of our focus. Soil health is presented as a foundation that reflects the capacity of soil to respond to sustainable agricultural system that continues support the agricultural production. Current agricultural practices are disturbing the soils for nutrients uptake and through harvesting the soil organic levels are dramatically decreasing. We want to reflect the capacity of being able to build systems that will help soil to respond to sustainable agricultural system which in continues support the agricultural production. 2) Produce Renewable energy from waste and on the other hand Biochar. Biochar will be developed through solid materials obtained from the carbonization of biomass through pyrolysis. It has a powerful potential as soil amendment agent and carbon sequestration medium. In addition it will improve the soil and sequestering carbon, providing a environmentally sustainable waste stream management and mitigating nitrogen and clean chemicals with other runoffs that helps preserve marine life.This will contribute to Improving the economic viability of food production, reduce production costs and improving sustainability 3)This sustainable cycle through renewable energy will provide a environmentally sustainable waste stream management, more sustainable agricultural soil, improved food security in longer terms and also opportunity and development of more energy.
