Brazilian Agtech wants to reverse greenhouse effect in 15 years

Mahogany Roraima, a Brazilian agtech specialized in forest planting, has the prototype of a solution to face one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: climate change.

Science article says world needs 1.2 trillion more trees to curb greenhouse

According to a study published in the prestigious journal Science, planting 1.2 trillion trees, or four times the total of the Amazon, would be necessary to curb global warming. With the pace of current techniques reaching 42 million seedlings a year, the world would need 28,500 years to reach the goal. There is no wait.

For, according to the company, the Forest Planting Machine would have a planting capacity of 20 hectares every 3 and a half hours, so, in theory, with 100 machines it would be possible to reach 1.2 trillion trees in about 15 years.

The equipment prototype already reaches 13 km / h during planting and, in six months, will also feature Agro 4.0 technologies such as computational vision by satellite images, sensors and big data to, in addition to planting, generate data on “ new forests ”.

“We are working to improve performance on both speed and embedded digital systems. These include georeferencing, drone monitoring, fire alarms and the Arduino processing platform, ”said Marcello Guimarães, president of Mahogany Roraima.

Thus, the expectation is also to bring economic viability to the system with computer intelligence. That is, in addition to planting trees such as mahogany, jatoba or others, allow planning for sustainable exploitation of forests.

According to the executive, the machine can plant 16,000 trees in just 3.5 hours, with only three operators. “With 100 machines, it would be possible to plant 1.2 trillion trees in 15 years and contain the greenhouse gas emission problem. The key to the equipment lies in a tiller system that can fix the root of the seedlings in the soil, ”he adds.

However, the difficulty of mass planting would be to produce large-scale seedlings, which could be solved by setting up nurseries in several states at the same time, mixing production into 50% native species and 50%. of exotic.

“The natives would remain in place forming the new forests, and the exotic ones years after planting could be cut down for the timber industry. We would solve environmental problems and illegal logging, ”he concluded.

Devastated areas

The company works in partnership with rural landowners for large-scale reforestation in devastated areas for regularization of environmental liabilities in exchange for future splitting of timber.

Through CAR (Rural Environmental Registry), the company seeks funding from the Amazon Fund to carry out the work, enable producers to comply with environmental legislation and thus preserve the largest tropical forest in the world.

Mahogany Roraima Reforestation

The Amazon can receive a “real” planting of 500,000 to 1 million seedlings of native tree species in what may be the largest reforestation project ever undertaken.

Reflorestamento da Mahogany Roraima

And we are not talking about aerial seedbed, commonly called “muvuca”, propagated as capable of afforesting millions of trees, when it is scientifically proven that their seedling conversion rate is very low – less than 5% of seeded seed arrives. sprouting into trees, according to experts.

To enable large-scale reforestation, the company Mahogany Roraima – headquartered in Sao Paulo and branch in Boa Vista – is offering a partnership to owners of devastated areas that need to regularize their environmental liabilities. Mahogany’s director, Marcello Guimarães, explains that the company would commit to reforesting the partner’s area, in exchange for in the future sharing with him the exploitation of part of the wood (the percentage allowed by law).

Mahogany itself would promote the mandatory registration of the partner owner in the CAR (Rural Environmental Registry), which is the first step to obtain the environmental regularity of the property.

Required for all rural properties, the CAR is a nationwide electronic public registry that aims to integrate environmental information from rural properties and possessions relating to Permanent Preservation Areas (APP), Restricted Use Areas, Legal Reserves (RL), remnants of forests and other forms of native vegetation. The registry is a database for control, monitoring, environmental and economic planning and combating deforestation.

Once the devastated areas have been identified, Mahogany Roraima will be able to apply for funding for reforestation projects to the Amazon Fund, which raises, from developed countries, financial resources to preserve the world’s largest rainforest and thus help fight against climate changes.

Since its creation in 2008, the Amazon Fund has received more than R $ 3.4 billion in donations and has become the main national instrument for funding prevention, monitoring and combating deforestation, promoting conservation and use. sustainable development of the Amazon biome. Its resources currently support 103 projects by state governments and civil society to protect the forest.

Expertise + state-of-the-art technology – The fourth largest African mahogany production company in the world, Mahogany Roraima has developed its own structure and state-of-the-art technology to plant 200 hectares per day (4,000 ha / year) with just 39 people. A 100% automatic machine, designed by Marcello, simplifies and speeds up planting and even allows a planned distribution of native species, contributing to the development and preservation of biodiversity in reforested areas.

To ensure the quality of the seedlings to be planted, the company has just concluded a technical-scientific partnership with professors from the University of Viçosa, specialists in native seedling production and cloning, forest planting and soil recovery for planting. It is this team that currently runs a 100,000 ha reforestation project in the Doce River basin, which bathes areas of the states of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. “We are specialists in fast planting, and they are the best in the world in producing seedlings,” says Marcello Guimarães.

Mahogany Roraima is currently presenting this solution for the recovery of devastated areas to the government of the State of Pará. It will then take it to all other states that make up the Legal Amazon (Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Mato Grosso, Rondonia, Roraima, Tocantins and Maranhão).

Forest planting machine gives hope in fight against deforestation

Created by the company Mahogany Roraima, a forest planting machine has a planting capacity of 20 hectares every 3 ½ hours; One hundred machines would plant 1 trillion trees in 14 years – enough, scientists say, to stem the increase in the world’s greenhouse effect.

Annual deforestation in the Amazon, measured between August 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019, was 9,762 km², considered the largest for the period over a ten-year period and 29.5% higher than in the same period last year. of 7,536 km².

The data are from INPE (National Institute for Space Research) and were presented on Monday (18), in the presence of ministers Ricardo Salles (Environment) and Marcos Pontes (Science) and the interim director at the institute, Darcton Damião.

In order to accelerate reforestation in these devastated areas, Brazilian company Mahogany Roraima, the world’s fourth largest African mahogany producer, has created a 100% automatic machine capable of planting seedlings of various species at a speed of 13 km / h – or 20 hectares every 3 and a half hours.

And that speed can still improve. “We are working to improve its performance”, informs Marcello Guimarães, president of the company’s Board of Directors.

According to him, thanks to the machine, Mahogany is able to plant 16,000 trees in just 3.5 hours, with only three operators. “With ten machines we could plant 200 hectares of forest every 3 ½ hours. In a 24-hour cycle, we could plant 1,200 hectares per day or 438,000 hectares per year using just ten machines. “, Calculates Guimarães.

With 100 machines, then, in just 14 years, it would be possible to plant 1 trillion trees, which scientists say would be enough to contain the problem of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet.

“Today, the largest forest plantations in the world total an average of 42 million trees per year. At this rate, it would take 23,000 years to reach the number of plantations needed ”, exemplifies the businessman.

According to him, the only difficulty of mass planting – large-scale seedling production – could be solved by setting up nurseries in several states at the same time, mixing production into 50% native species and 50% exotic

“It would help solve the problem of felling native trees in the future, because we would be planting species that can be cut as well. The natives would remain in place forming the new forests, and the exotic, years after planting, could be cut down for the timber industry. This would solve two problems: the environmental one, which requires urgency to plant forests, and the illegal logging ”, he concludes.
