Fertilizer Smart | Zero Carbon Ranch
Addressing the climate change challenge
What is the Zero Carbon Ranch that Phaeto advocates?
Zero Carbon Ranch is a set of specialized products that focuses on large-scale ranching, with digital smart technology and clean energy as the core, effectively offsetting the carbon footprint and reducing carbon emissions.
Advantages of Zero Carbon Ranching
1. Low-cost advantages from energy efficiency and carbon reduction
Promote the establishment of industry technical standards and industry management norms, thus helping enterprises to establish industry positioning advantages;
Reduce the probability of environmental pollution incidents or lawsuits, thereby reducing the cost of penalties, the cost of the risk of non-compliance , and the cost of managers' energy;
Low-carbon technologies reduce the use of raw materials and increase the efficiency of energy and other resources , resulting in higher productivity.
2. Differentiation from energy efficiency and carbon reduction
By purchasing and utilizing low-carbon resources, developing low-carbon product standards, developing low-carbon products, designing low-carbon packaging, marketing low-carbon products and promoting low-carbon brands, ranches are able to establish an energy-saving and environmentally friendly image of the enterprise and promote the implementation of the national dual-carbon strategy.
This results in high ratings from consumers, the public and other stakeholders, improved relationships with stakeholders, and enhanced corporate reputation.
The improvement of corporate reputation can further promote the formation of brand preference and brand loyalty among consumers, enabling companies to obtain higher product premiums.
How do I get started?
The creation of a zero-carbon ranch is based on three main aspects: source reduction, process control, and end-use.
Reduction at source
Feed reduction and water conservation
Such as the selection of good cattle breeds, optimize herd structure, improve the level of epidemic prevention and other means, so as to reduce the production unit of milk nitrogen, phosphorus and other substances discharged.
In accordance with the requirements of net sewage diversion and rainwater and sewage diversion, the open exercise yard is canceled, the roof cover is added and turned into a cattle shed for loose raising, and a special manure clearing channel is set up in the shed to improve the collection rate of manure, and at the same time to avoid mixing of rainwater and manure and increasing the area and flow of sewage;
Step-by-step implementation of processes in the production chain
Such as the use of microbial bacterial feeding, improve the animal body immunity at the same time, promote feed digestibility, and thus reduce the amount of fecal excretion, odor emissions;
Such as the use of solid cow manure regeneration bedding reuse technology, reduce solid waste generation at the same time, to achieve the utilization of pasture manure resources, waste into treasure recycling development;
For example, accurate measurement and recording of data such as barn stock, feeding capacity, energy consumption (especially water and electricity) can be used to calculate the carbon emissions of each link according to an algorithmic formula, which is used as a data basis for point-to-point precision management;
Learning and adoption of advanced technologies
Manure good itch composting technology. Scale farms can choose trough (bin) type composting or reactor composting according to their own capacity and demand. The former has a large processing capacity, but the operation is more complicated; the latter has a small processing capacity, but a high degree of automation.
Manure water reuse technology. After solid-liquid separation, manure water can be combined with straw, wood chips, mushroom slag and other materials with low water content to be mixed into standard fertilizers, so as to realize the reuse of manure water.
Biogas production and utilization technology. The treatment of manure produces a large amount of biogas, and effective storage and utilization of biogas is a necessary part of zero-carbon ranching.
Clean energy inputs are utilized in conjunction with clean energy suppliers, such as photovoltaics. By covering the roof of the barn with photovoltaic panels and constructing a small ecological power station, we can meet the power supply of the ranch while improving the efficiency of energy use and reducing carbon emissions on the energy supply side!
