Carbon Capture – The Role of Soil

    Soils have been depeleted of their carbon stores over many years, primarily by the industrial generation of food. Scientists and agriculture are coming to recognise the potential for adding carbon back to the soil, but its a challenge. Thallo® contributes to this process by capturing carbon in the organic matter it uses in the manufacturing

    Phosphorus (P) Its Discovery, Use and Future Sources

      In the early 1800’s, it was discovered that phosphate (P) is beneficial for plant growth. As the value of “pounded” bones were recognised as a P source, the demand grew quickly in the early 19th century. Unprocessed bones (hydroxyapatite; Ca5F(PO4)3OH) were crushed and applied to the soil at a rate of 1 t/A or more.

              Rothamsted Research Thallo with EU Grant

                Rothamsted Research is trialling a new phosphorous fertiliser made from abattoir waste and industrial by-products as part of a ten-month EU funded project. Concerns over cadmium build-up in soils means that many naturally occurring sources of phosphate could soon be outlawed by the European Government. As part of a European Union Regional Development fund, linked

                Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation

                  The UK Government has set the fifth Carbon Budget which limits greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 57% of 1990 levels over 2028-2032 (as an average annual level). The Government is now preparing the Emission Reduction Plan which will set out our approach to delivering these reductions. Domestic transport is now the largest emitting sector, accounting

                      The global, continuous and pervasive impact of climate change threatens our creaking food system in which harvests are already lagging behind rising demand.[1] Several studies have shown that global crop production needs to double by 2050 to meet the projected demands from rising population, diet shifts, and increasing biofuels consumption.[2] A sustainable supply of food
