Our technology is registered to Sustainable Technology Promotion Platform (STePP) of UNIDO
The Soil amendment technology Porous Alpha is registered to Sustainable Technology Promotion Platform (STePP) of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization Investment and Technology Promotion Office, Tokyo (UNIDO ITPO Tokyo).
(The information can be seen from here.)
UNIDO is one of the agencies of the United Nations, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrial development in developing countries.
UNIDO ITPO Tokyo shares platform (STePP) on Japanese technologies that contribute to sustainable industrialization, in order to promote the transfer of such technologies to developing and emerging countries.
By mixing Porous Alpha into the soil, it is possible to increase water retention capacity and aeration in the soil, which leads the water saving and yield increase at the same time.
This technology has realized impacts in various countries such as Japan, Kenya, Mauritania, Senegal, Morocco, and Kenya.
(The result of the experimentation can be seen here.)
We continue to contribute global environmental issue such as food security and water and achievement of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) through Porous Alpha, multi-functional porous material made by recycling glass waste.
