MAJOR SPACE PROJECTS
The program, led by Blue Horizon aims at developing, marketing and sale of products and services related to the fertilisation of soils in arid and semi-arid areas. Our biological soil crust (BSC) is capable to strongly reduce water and wind erosion and creates the basis for first pioneer plants. It also forms a CO2 sink. After a laboratory phase, the BSC has been tested in our open field test sites in Burkina Faso. At the same time, a site selection and monitoring system is developed using Earth Observation data. After the field test, the next step is the implementation of a large-scale field test (1 ha and 1 km2) in Morocco, which will be carried out between 2023 and 2025.
The project aims at developing printable material out of algae. First tests have been successful, and the material is now qualified. A second project will now further qualify different materials and allow the production of various tools using 3D printing technologies.
Development of a nitrification process using algae and bacteria to convert urine into useful products in space.
