BUSINESS VALUE PROPOSITIONS

  

This new technology proposes a trace-able, non-poison and 100 % GMO free fodder replacement for soy animal fodder including starch for human consumption and the food industry. There is a large existing market for such product due to the fact that the cultivation of soy beans, especially GMO is very harmful to the environment and complete eco systems.

 

Currently the EU alone imports 50 million tons of soy, primarily for the fodder industry.

As a rest product of our technology there will be considerable amounts of starch that could be used for ethanol production. However currently this is not allowed in the the EU but in the rest of the world.

Today the dominating soy that is currently on the market is "round up ready", ie the crop is resistant to this detergent. But it has been shown that the use of this detergent is dangerous for both humans and animals. And quite recently a San Francisco court has come to the decision that it can cause cancer and thus enable multiple legal claims for damages.

 

 

The Peas on Earth concept and the Ecoreaktor produce trace-able, non-poisoned and 100% GMO-free protein from Fava-beans that may be used as an alternative. Fava-beans has as good amino-acid composition as soy and will even yield twice the amount of protein per hectar.

In additions, figures from the WWF has shown that when soy cultivation expands on the Pampas and the Cerrada in South America, the cattle that used to graize this land is now being moved into Amazonas after devastation of the rain forests. Experts have shown that deforestation indirectly will increase global CO2 emissions by as much as 12 per cent thus jeopardizing the UN environmental goals. So in the years to come, there will be considerably incitements to find a replacement for soy.

Legumes in symbiosis with a bacteria are nitrogen-fixators and at first this is the major way that protein are produced in the world. The photosynthesis produce glucose. But in order to produce nitrogen it i necesary to add nitrogen that produces amino-acids and Nitrogen bases (DNA). However if you use fava beans instead this won't be necessary. 

Legumes are biologically able to fixate 50 kg of nitrogen from the air. And this nitrogen will remain be left in the soils after harvest. In addition there is approximately 90 kg of nitrongen left in the starches, so it becomes a product that may be sold at the markets for fertilizers. Today then normal production of commercial nitrogen causes 13 % of the CO2 emissions from world wide farming.

Thes implies that ethanol produced by the the Peas on Earth will be able to bind nine times the CO2 emissions from an average car.
