The Idea

The Current Situation

Across the forestry and agriculture industries there is a desire to improve the spreading of fertilizers and ashes on the growing plots. Forest fertilizers, for example, are being used to increase the growth and growth rates of forests. Current spreading methods are via tractors, converted forestry machines and helicopters. Converting forestry machines is the most common method, which can be an expensive enterprise.
In the case of ash recycling, a large part of Sweden's energy supply is through combustion of forest-based biofuels. When wood is burnt, a by-product of ash is obtained. The purpose of ash recycling is to return nutrients to the forest soils, thereby closing the cycle of biofuels (closed loop cycle). Ash recycling has some positive effects on the growth and vitality of the forest environment, including the prevention of soil acidification. There is a need for thermal power plants to dispose of the ash produced, and ash recycling is a method of taking care of the by-product.
