During our attendance at Fieldays, we featured on a panel chaired by the UK High Commissioner, Laura Clarke, about the value UK innovations like Ccm's, could bring to New Zealand. The High Commissioner went on to highlight CCm and its carbon capture capabilities in an interview with John Campbell on TV1’s ‘Breakfast’, New Zealand’s most-watched morning television show.
CCm Technologies on the International Stage
This month CCm Technologies showcased the value of Carbon Capture technologies at Fieldays, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event, known for demonstrating cutting edge technology and innovation in the sector.
The appetite to learn more about decarbonisation solutions that work alongside existing farming practices is strong, and the enthusiasm witnessed in New Zealand is something we are finding from agricultural sectors across nations. This motivation for change could not come at a better time, emissions from agricultural production currently account for 15%-20% of global greenhouse gas emissions and have risen 14% since 2000. Research shows that when factoring in land-use change, agricultural emissions could represent 70% or more of the world’s carbon budget by 2050.
During our attendance at Fieldays, we featured on a panel chaired by the UK High Commissioner, Laura Clarke, about the value UK innovations like ours could bring to New Zealand. The High Commissioner went on to highlight CCm and its carbon capture capabilities in an interview with John Campbell on TV1’s ‘Breakfast’, New Zealand’s most-watched morning television show. As highlighted by the UK High Commissioner, with the UK hosting the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, this year, there has never been a better time to discuss how pioneering innovation can make a difference internationally. CCm’s technology is an important step in decarbonisation efforts because it both incentivise capturing and converting waste while providing the global farming community with fertilisers that have a carbon footprint more than 90% lower than conventional fertilisers. Not only this, but the fertiliser products are cost-competitive with their high carbon alternatives and can be used with existing plant infrastructure.
All this means CCm’s technology does not require any farmer anywhere in the world to pay more to acquire the necessary nutrients for their food production while achieving the same if not better crop yield, protein quality and soil fertility. The global farming community can make a significant impact to its carbon footprint by merely swapping one product for a cost comparable alternative.
CCm is excited to continue international conversations about decarbonisation. We have patents granted around the world, including with the UK, EU, US, China, India and Brazil with further pending approval.
In our experience, farmers are ready and willing to introduce sustainable production practices. We are now looking towards COP26 in November where we hope to showcase our technology and spread the word about the contribution it can play in instant emissions reductions.
