THE FIRST CARBON PLANTATION IN ISRAEL HAS BEGUN
We are pleased to announce the signing of an exclusivity Partnership Agreement on IP, Pongamia genetics, and agrotechnical methods with the state of Israel, to develop and implement the best prime energy trees carbon plantations.
The agreement with the State of Israel to implement our project and the commencement of joint research and development works aimed at the effective fight against the degradation of our planet and renewable energy development.
Kessler Projects for the World LTD and the State of Israel are partners in all research and development of prime genetics and arid agrotechnical methods, mutually setting the first carbon plantation in Israel and the middle east.
Carbon plantations play an essential role in climate change policy as an option to slow the build-up of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations. This post will briefly present why it is crucial to define the correct directions for the project implementation.
What type of carbon plantation is most suitable for climate protection?
This first and fundamental question that arises when you decide to enter this type of business. As there are many species of trees, entirely different carbon plantations can be created. We do not want to write here only about planting a tree that will consume CO2 and generate oxygen in the atmosphere. However, we want to show that Kessler knows what the best model of such a plantation looks like and how to fight climate changes effectively based on a sustainable policy.
The idea for the Carbon Plantation policy is to capture carbon dioxide and hold it in a tied and permanent manner so that it doesn't get back into the atmosphere. Here, one has to wonder if a carbon plantation created for wood or fuel commercial production (in wood chips or pellets) is effective enough? Certainly not, as the CO2 captured by the tree is released back into the atmosphere. Of course, it should be emphatic here that it is not new carbon dioxide produced from fossil fuels, but CO2 that has been effectively bound only for a short time.
Another question is, what kind of tree is better for creating a Carbon plantation - coniferous or deciduous?
Fast-growing conifers absorb carbon faster than slow-growing deciduous trees. If a tree is cut down and the wood is burned, this carbon is released into the atmosphere. This clearly shows that carbon plantation, geared to producing wood as a fuel, is not helping to win effectively against the climate crisis, especially if such trees are felled before 15 years and used to produce short-lived goods. Thus, carbon plantations geared to the commercial production of wood are not sufficient to protect the climate.
What cultivation of conifers. These trees show the best carbon sequences on good quality soil. The question is whether the creation of such a plantation on agricultural grounds and land makes economic sense?
If we create a carbon plantation on low-quality soils (peat soils) based on conifers, we must know that draining peat soil also generates large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere.
The location of such a carbon plantation is also critical. It must be created in a place where it will not disturb the existing ecosystem and biodiversity. So, here comes another question - where is the best place to locate a new plantation?
Therefore, the best direction seems to be to plant deciduous forests on poor-quality soils and leave them intact. This option appears to be the safest for wildlife and guarantees a long-term carbon sequence.
Therefore, the following principle must be followed: "planting the right species of trees in the right place." It seems simple, but it requires a team of professionals who will examine all the risks, weaknesses, and strengths of the project before the plantation is established and start the project in a fully responsible manner.
Kessler projects for the world Ltd is proud to develop the most advanced genetics and start a joint project in cooperation with one of the world's best research institutes, A.R.O., the Agriculture research organization of Israel.
Our plantation is based on a particular type of tree that will:
Tolerant for zones with low precipitation
Shows high resistance to soil salinity
It will grow on poor-quality soils, often degraded by industry, which are unsuitable for agriculture
It will restore the usable value of soil and adapt it to agriculture and intercropping
We do not cut down the trees; they will grow until the end of their life (minimum 100 years)
An advanced patented technology combined with a scientific program will process energy and nutrition from the fruits of the trees
Kessler projects for the world Ltd. would like to thank all ministries, companies and individuals who support us, believe in our project, and actively protect our planet.
