Nitrogen based fertilizers have always been a sought after solution with farming – they are not only incredibly effective, they are readily available and a cost effective method of enhancing crops.
Unfortunately, Nitrous Oxide (N₂O) is created as a bi-product of these fertilizers. N₂O is 265 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide and it contributes to the depletion of our ozone layer. In a paper published recently in Nature Climate Change, global emissions are shown to be higher and growing faster than are being recorded, as per the conversation.com. https://tinyurl.com/rg9p4ne
With the current level of technology available at hand, it’s important that we stay vigilant and learn the weight our own ecological footprint. Scentroid carries an incredibly advanced non dispersion infrared Nitrous Oxide sensor – We can help monitor your facility, help plot the best course of action, and connect you with the latest mitigation solutions – before regulatory framework is placed on your operation. Remember, sudden change can be both difficult and expensive. Be proactive, not reactive – Let’s figure out the best solution for you, together.
