Methodology

Soil carbon

Soil carbon sequestration is the process of increasing organic and inorganic soil carbon through capturing and storing of carbon from plants.

Andes Microprime

About the project

Andes is developing a technology that harnesses the power of microbes to capture atmospheric carbon dioxide and permanently store it as inorganic carbon within the soil. Their patented solution called Microprime allows Andes microbes to be biologically integrated within seeds, ensuring that crops interact with these desired microbes to sequester carbon in an inorganic form and increase yields.

Project impact to date

3 tons of CO2 per acre
Andes solution will initially target soil types with high potential for carbon sequestration, delivering high-impact removal.
$10-$40 benefit to farmers per acre
Farmers benefit from an extra revenue stream without changing practice; just input. This supports fair wages and increases employment opportunities.
4 GtCO₂e per year
The potential contribution of net emission reduction by 2030 from carbon sequestration in agriculture and reduction of CH4 and N20 emissions in agriculture.

Sustainable development goals

The project supports 3 goals outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Zero hungerIndustry, innovation and infrastructureClimate action

9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure

The project helps to enhance scientific research, upgrade the technological capabilities of agriculture, and encourage innovation.

13 - Climate action

Andes' Microprime allows microbes to capture carbon and nitrogen from the atmosphere, reducing our dependencies on synthetic fertilisers to provide soils with the necessary nutrients.
