Safi Organics

Abstract

Safi Organics produces a carbon-negative soil conditioner derived from biomass (farm) waste designed for rural smallholder farmers, leading to a 30% increase in crop yield and 50% increase in income by reversing soil degradation.

Biomass waste is present in most rural farms every year after harvest, and yet most of this waste is burned in open air rather than economically utilized because existing capital-intensive/centralized processing technologies often require the long-distance transport of this waste, which is very expensive. We have developed patent-pending environmentally friendly reactors and unique recipes enabling the low-cost and decentralized conversion of waste into carbon-negative soil conditioner in under 2 hours. Our EcoCert-certified product is already sold to more than 80 acres of land, with highly positive customer reviews. In addition, this product actively sequesters 1.5 tons/acre of CO2 into the soil per planting season, directly mitigating climate change.
