Food, Water and Energy are the three most important elements for sustainability of humankind, and Michael Chaplinsky and his Equinox team of innovators are focused on projects to promote all three.
Humankind is at a tipping point, and food, water and energy are the elements to change.
The world has lost a third of its arable land due to erosion or pollution in the past 40 years, with potentially disastrous consequences as global demand for food soars, scientists have warned.
Water is essential to life, yet 771 million people in the world - 1 in 10 - lack access to it. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the water crisis is the #5 global risk in terms of impact to society.
Energy is at the heart of the sustainable development agenda to 2030.
The Equinox team, headed by Michael Chaplinsky the president of Turf Feeding Systems, is sharply focused on several projects that bring together their technologies to grow more food, produce water, and energy cheaper and cleaner than anything on the planet.
Michael Chaplinsky explains; “My background is water, soils and irrigation for over 35 years, and I have brought together a leading team of scientists, engineers and practitioners each focused on their field in food, water and energy. Our team has combined innovative and existing technologies Water, Soil Health and Food Production Are The Most Important Issues Facing the World (prweb.com) to create a unique sustainable operating platform in the real world with people who need help, technology and guidance.”
Their first key project is on Santiago Island in the Capo Verdi Islands off Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. The Cape Verde islands are remote, have limited water, limited food production, and import everything, including fertilizer and chemicals to grow food.
Michael continues; “Santiago Island is a typical isolated island nation with good soil, plentiful workers, great growing conditions, but scarce water, and expensive fertilizer and chemicals controlled by the importers and duties. They are in a trap and can’t get out on their own.
We are going there with total package platform. We will implement our High Yield Growing Center to grow more food and produce low cost fertilizer from local sugar cane. We will build a Focus Line solar desalination facility to produce fresh water from the sea for the islanders and farms, and we will implement a solar energy program with farmers to produce and store renewable energy at their farm using new Infusion Energy technologies.
We will give them the tools, supervision and the guidance to emerge as the top organic food producers at the lowest cost. We will help them be independent and sustainable.”
