Enabling sustainable agriculture to feed a growing population
Decarbonizing plant nutrition
Producing the world’s most environmentally and economically sustainable nitrogen fertilizer through innovative solutions
The background of NitroCapt – An idea to benefit agriculture and reduce emissions
NitroCapt is a climate-tech company creating a sustainable cost-efficient green nitrogen fertilizer with zero emission, using air, water and renewable energy as the only input – a true revolution!
We need fertilizers in order to feed a growing population and nitrogen is the most commonly used plant nutrient. However, the nitrogen fertilizer industry today is fossil-dependent, and the CO2-emissions are at the same levels as the global aviation industry, 500 million tons yeary!
Our process, SUNIFIX®, reduces the carbon footprint by 100%. We have a solution to a quick transition into a decarbonized nitrogen fertilizer industry with a business model that makes our customer more profitable than continuing with fossil-based fertilizers.
The story behind NitroCapt
The idea behind NitroCapt came in 2006 when Gustaf Forsberg read about a solution to reduce nitrogen oxide gases (NOx) in cars.
With a background in physics working with environmental agricultural innovations he realized a cleaner and more efficient way to produce nitrate fertilizers. He couldn’t drop this idea for many years, and in 2016 he contacted the best chemist he knew, Peter Baeling, to get a second opinion and Peter was astonished. Together they took this idea further and created a full chemical process that was highly energy efficient and still with no emissions.
NitroCapt is a sustainable chemical/agricultural technology company headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden.
