TOP 4 ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS OF THE EARTH RIGHT NOW
- Overpopulation of the planet
In the middle of the 20th century, the world’s population was 3 billion, and by the end it had grown to 6. Scientists predict that by 2040 the world’s population will reach 9 billion people. Because of this, the number of diseases increases, as well as a shortage of food, water and energy.
- Depletion of the ozone layer
At the moment, the ozone layer has decreased by 10%, which indicates that the influx of ultraviolet radiation to the Earth’s surface is increasing. Such changes entail harm to human health, vision problems arise. And even this amount of ultraviolet radiation can cause skin cancer. Depletion of the ozone layer entails not only health problems for people, but also irreparable harm to agriculture, the main source of food for people. Many crops are damaged by excessive UV radiation.
3.Reduction of biological diversity
Many species of plants and animal breeds have already disappeared from the face of the Earth, and many are on the verge of extinction right now. The human influence on this trend cannot be denied.
Scientists believe that this is due to several factors, such as loss of habitat, overexploitation of biological resources, environmental pollution, the influence of biological species brought from other territories.
- Climate change
Of course, the first thing ecologists shout about loudly is global warming. And it is not in vain that global warming is a serious problem of mankind, which has been going on for several decades, and every year it is rapidly aggravating, and the consequences will be irreversible. A rise in the level of the world’s oceans, a decrease in agricultural production, and a shortage of fresh water are just a few of the consequences that global warming brings.
To solve this problem, environmentalists highlight options such as reducing carbon dioxide emissions, switching to carbon-free fuels, and developing a more economical fuel strategy. One of the options for preventing an ecological catastrophe is the use of organic fertilizer Biochar. Biochar has tremendous potential to significantly increase agricultural productivity in poor soils and help stem the effects of global warming. Biochar also has an important advantage in reducing the carbon footprint of modern agriculture. Biochar is a special product resulting from low-temperature pyrolysis. Raw materials are heated to temperatures no higher than 550 ° C, without the use of oxygen. As a result, we obtain charcoal of various fractions and biochar, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase soil fertility.
The Ukrainian company GreenPower produces ovens of the world quality standard, the capabilities of which include the production of biochar. The furnaces operate on the basis of pyrolysis and are environmentally friendly, have a convenient automated control system and high reliability. GreenPower equipment receives prompt service support from our specialists.
