GLOBAL EMISSION IN NUMBERS
SCALING UP ACTION
Earth Observation As A Service
Earth Observation is the gathering of information about planet Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems via remote sensing technologies, usually involving satellites carrying imaging devices in combination with in-situ (non-space) sensors. Earth observation is used to monitor and assess the status of, and changes in, the natural environment and human landscape.
Space-based technologies deliver reliable and repeat-coverage datasets, which combined with research and development of appropriate methods, provide a unique means for gathering information concerning our planet. Examples include the monitoring of the state and evolution of our environment, be it land, sea or air, and the ability to rapidly assess situations during crises such as extreme weather events or during times of human conflict.
we are serving a large number of applications which include the following services: rail car monitoring, ag-tech monitoring systems, wildlife tracking, livestock tracking, fisheries, vessel monitoring systems, environmental monitoring, utilities, and infrastructure and smart grid monitoring.LEARN MORE
Livestock Track And Tracing
How do you monitor 100,000 head of
roaming cattle on an equal amount of remote acreage?
We can remotely track the health of your herds and fields
giving the insight you need to predict better, plan, and manage your
Agricultural infrastructure is also critical to the success of any operation.
Tracking beehives, knowing silo capacity, receiving data from AgTech
drones and robots, and monitoring smart irrigation and soil moisture
levels, allow you to optimize your entire business. You need the ability to
maintain these assets from anywhere. We wrangles up your
assets, bringing inexpensive, two-way communications to your most
critical farming assets.
PlantsPlants remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in a process called carbon sequestration. The carbon dioxide is stored in biomass then released by the plant. In most cases, the amount released is less than the amount consumed by the plant. Farms, grasslands and forests are considered sources or sinks of carbon dioxide, depending on the practices on these lands
HEALTHCarbon dioxide is essential for the survival of animals. Oxygen is carried to body tissue during breathing and carbon dioxide is released. The gas protects the pH level of blood. Too much carbon dioxide, however, can kill animals. If carbon dioxide is confined, it can decrease the amount of oxygen reaching the body. Any increase or decrease to the amount of carbon dioxide reaching the body can lead to kidney failure or coma.
SOURCESCombustible fossil fuels such as coal, power plant gas, oil, vehicles and big industry are the largest source of carbon dioxide. The production is from various items such as iron, steel, cement, natural gas, solid waste combustion, lime, ammonia, limestone, cropland, soda ash, aluminum, petrochemical, titanium and phosphoric acid. Carbon dioxide accounts for nearly 85 percent of all emissions and is produced when natural gas, petroleum and coal are used.
What Others Say
Methane emissions refer to the portions of methane that are released into the atmosphere. Methane is the principal component of natural gas.It is useful in many ways, but it can also be harmful to the environment.
Sources of methane production include wetlands (22%); gas and coal mining or natural gas (19%); enteric fermentation in ruminants (16%); rice cultivation (12%); biomass burning (8%); land fills (6%); and animal waste (5%).
CEO @ COOLAPP
The global warming potential of methane is 23 times that of CO2 but its atmospheric lifetime is only 12 years, compared with 100 to 200 years for CO2. methane has a larger effect, the duration of the effect is much shorter
COO @ COOLAPP
If the soil health and nitrogen status are improved by cover crops and organic fertilisers, such as manure, rather than chemical fertiliser, less nitrous oxide will be released. On-farm emissions can also be reduced by using environmentally friendly energy sources such as solar or wind
CFO @ COOLAPP
Our Awesome Team
The most important GHGs and the contribution to total emissions are CO2 (49%), methane (18%) and nitrate gases (6%)
As cattle in South Africa are fattened in feedlots for about 110 days, they produce GHG for only 110 days before being slaughtered.
“For cattle on rangeland or pasture, it requires more than 200 days to finish to the same carcass classification because of the lower-quality feed compared to a feedlot diet
