Agriculture

With cost and sustainability in mind, Calix has developed solutions to help agricultural companies improve food production, lower the need for fungicides and pesticides, and convert waste to energy.

While the world has recently had a wake-up call over food shortages and climate change, reducing dependence on so-called hard chemicals, along with finding more sustainable sources of energy is becoming increasingly important for the agriculture industry.

Making crop protection safer

Existing chemicals and pesticides for agriculture are already in the process of being deregistered – especially in Europe – or regulations around when and how they can be used are becoming tighter.

These restrictions require farmers to look for innovative solutions to help them overcome pests and disease in their crops.

Convert waste to energy

Treating wastewater from industries and farms has a dual potential benefit. Treated water can be recycled to help cut down industries’ fresh water use, and the waste load in wastewater can be converted to biogas and used to produce electricity.

Anaerobic digestion is a natural process that converts organic matter present in wastewater sludge into biogas for electricity, as well as significantly reducing the contaminant load in treated water.

The energy produced from the biogas can be fed back into the grid or used in other parts of the production process, which represents a real opportunity to reduce energy costs.
