New onboarding alert! We are very happy to welcome Watergenics to our portfolio of Science-driven ventures.
Liviu Mantescu, Dr. with Cristian and Camille are building a novel sensor and machine learning platform to solve an often invisible problem: the impact that current fish farming and agriculture practices have on our marine, soil and ground water ecosystems. In short:
fertilisers can improve plant and fish yield however excess usage of these is common and this leads to run-offs which have a devastating impact on biodiversity, ground water pollution and global warming.
with nitrogen and phosphorus loadings expected to double by 2050, this problem is only bound to worsen and governments bound to intervene.
Watergenics has developed a realtime and scalable monitoring system which will help farmers better manage the usage of nutrients both saving costs and the environment.
It's going to take a big collaborative effort to address this challenge, If this is relevant to your industry or region we would love to hear from you.
