Groasis, solution for climate change?

Groasis solution for climate change.

If you have not heard of this company, they have turned back the Sahara desert and made it fertile, cleaned up salt mines in Spain and helped African countries in severe drought to flourish. Trees planted with their method in the Moroccan desert had a 85% survival rate.

Press message about IPCC report

Yesterday the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), issued a report which states that the planet will reach the crucial threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels as early as 2030, increasing the risk of extreme drought, wildfires, floods and food shortages for hundreds of millions of people. It says that ‘ governments around the world must take rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society to avoid disastrous levels of global warming. According to IPCC we have 12 years to address this challenge.
The Treesolution helps solve climate change

There is a cheap, affordable, solution that creates wealth while solving the CO₂ problem. Groasis calls it ‘The Treesolution’. In 2008 Pieter Hoff, Groasis’ founder, wrote a book about this solution and since then his company Groasis continued to work on making implementation of the solution as cheap as possible. The Treesolution can save us from climate change at less than half the cost of the bank bail out that followed the 2008 crisis.

Paris COP21 acknowledges that agriculture and forestry are crucial elements of emissions reduction. Trees are nature’s ‘low capex and minimum opex’- tool to generate carbon offsets (the ultimate Negative Emissions Technology). Through the principle of photosynthesis CO₂ is captured and extracted from the atmosphere and converted into valuable products (CCUS/CCER).

Most fertile land on earth is already planted and extracts CO₂ from the atmosphere. In order to prevent climate change we need to develop additional capacity to remove CO₂ from the atmosphere. The extra CO₂ offsets have to be realized on currently unused, degraded, dry, and eroded land. The Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology enables planting of productive trees in combination with vegetables on this type of degraded land, using 90% less water and at 90% lower cost than existing methods, whilst resulting on average in a 90% survival rate.

Besides offsetting CO₂ emissions with productive trees, Groasis’ disruptive technology allows hundreds of millions of people to develop resilient food production systems – offering wide social benefits in the form of food, water savings and employment. The Treesolution -based on the Groasis Ecological Water Saving Technology – not only solves the climate problem but also addresses poverty, unemployment and hunger. It generates 478 trillion US$ in revenues over the next 40 years thus stimulating all countries that today suffer from economic stress caused by drought, it creates over 1.2 billion new jobs and helps solve the food problem.

Calculate your countries’ costs: here is the list of countries with the annual emissions of CO₂. If you want to calculate the costs of The Treesolution to make your country CO₂ neutral, then copy the annual emissions of your country from this list, add three zero’s, and paste this number into cel 8C of tab page ‘Introduction and Summary’ of the accompanying excel document ‘ 5 20181001 Groasis Growboxx The Treesolution Investment Calculation template’. Once you’ve done this, cel 29C of the same tab page shows the costs of The Treesolution for your country.

About Groasis: Groasis was founded by Mr. Pieter Hoff. In 2003 he invented a tecehnology to enable planting on degraded land with 90% less water, at 90% less costs and resulting in 90% survival rate. The technology has been perfected over the last decade and proven in 42 countries on 6 continents. In 2016 Groasis was awarded the status of “National Icon” by the Dutch Government for being one of the three most sustainable companies that support economic growth. In 2017 the UN World Food Program selected Groasis as a partner to help them reach their ‘Zero hunger by 2030’ challenge. In September 2018 Groasis was crowned as the most innovative company of the Netherlands by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.
