With a passionate commitment to sustainability and a vision for transforming water management, Zac Gazit - the CEO of Alvatech - is here to unveil a groundbreaking technology that promises to revolutionize agriculture.
Our host Adrian dives into the inspiring story behind Alvatech. With tens of millions of farmers facing the daunting challenge of increasing soil salinity, Zac and his team set out on a mission to provide a sustainable solution that won't harm the environment.
What exactly does this tech offer? Zac reveals Alvatech’s simple yet ingenious irrigation system, designed by farmers, for farmers. By enabling the use of saline water for crop growth without adding to soil salinity, this technology emerges as a holy grail for arid and semi-arid environments.
As the discussion unfolds, Zac sheds light on the transformative impact of this technology on water usage, irrigation frequency, and overall crop health. The system's ability to break down salt layers and mineral components ensures healthier soil and substantial water savings, reaching up to 60%.
The episode also explores Alvatech's significant social ethos, empowering women in agriculture, supporting farmers in distressed areas, and promoting soil biodiversity. Zac's commitment to a net-zero approach, fully solar-powered and environmentally responsible, shines as an exemplary model for a greener future.
