What is Solvify?
Solvify—an attempt towards alleviating global hunger and water scarcity—is a super-absorbent polymer that, while using significantly less water, can help farmers grow a greater quantity of food per hectare. Owing to its novel, biodegradable nature, the nanoparticles that make up Solvify allow it to retain water up to 1000 times of its own weight, consequently releasing said water to the roots of plants and crops as per their requirement. On an aggregate level, this allows farmers to grow ~15-25% more food/hectare using ~70% less water compared to traditional practices.
Agri-sector consumes 70% of the global-freshwater resources leading to water scarcity which in turn poses increases global food insecurity.
In every single second
Old agri practices continue to waste thirty million acre-foot or ten trillion gallons of water per annum which can be used to quench the thirst of masses
More than 5 billion people could suffer water shortages due to climate change, increased demand and polluted supplies, according to a UN report on the state of the world’s water. Food demand is predicted to increase by 50%.
Our Goal is to achieve Sustainable Development
Through our activities, solutions and efforts trickling down to the grass roots level of the community to raise awareness on the plastic pollution, and its negative and long-lasting impacts on our global environmental ecosystems i.e. forests, oceans, tropical wetlands, tropical marine and mainland ecosystems we are continuously striving to address and achieve the following sustainable development goals:
Our Partnerships & Collaborations
We have partnered up with organizations to help them and to receive their support in achieving the collective goal of putting an end to the world hunger and water scarcity in our local and global community. We work together to design awareness campaigns and workshops using engaging content. Working with our technology partners we strive to innovate at the intersection of the modern technology to bring innovative and sustainable solutions to life.
