Legal Counsel for Blockchain Smart Contracts Announced for Carbon Tokenization

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Carbon Asset Network (CAN) announces that Oklahoma-based Wurtz & Associates will provide oversight and facilitation of the blockchain-based "smart contracts" related to the recently revealed initiative by CAN. Through an innovative protocol, this process tokenizes land resources for carbon sequestration and protection of the soil and water resources. The initiative makes use of the natural process of photosynthesis, which reduces carbon in the air.

"We chose Kimberly Wurtz's firm to oversee this aspect because she is specialized in property law and water law, as well as land management, and has focused her firm on solely assisting landowners," says John Robitaille, Director of Carbon Asset Network. "Her firm will act as the point of contact for tokenizing the landowner assets from start to finish."

The initiative will also have support from a Digital Asset Manager who will provide the information necessary to validate the resource's title and ensure the smart contracts are properly in place. The use of blockchain creates a secure, unchangeable title and legal language in contracts so there is upmost transparency and accountability. This initiative will be the first to apply this type of technology to a real property in a way that not only benefits the landowner, but also benefits the land and promotes climate wellness.

"At Wurtz & Associates, our focus is to help empower landowners in protecting their land and resources. By utilizing blockchain, landowners can participate in CAN's grants for soil health, water, carbon, and other essential aspects to ensure that the land thrives," says firm owner Kimberly Wurtz. "Our firm is a fierce advocate for landowner rights and the protection of all natural resources."

Carbon Asset Network offers grants from the nonprofit Synergy for Ecological Solutions to land managers to create a total ecological solution in consultation with CAN's agronomy experts. Through photosynthesis, an increase in soil health will result in a decrease of carbon in the air.

Blockchain Meets Agriculture to Improve Soil and Air Quality

CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Two innovative Cheyenne-based companies, the agricultural Carbon Asset Network and blockchain consultancy group Ember Labs have joined forces to create the new pathway for carbon sequestration and improving air quality by using the power of blockchain. This new model is designed to be a private enterprise alternative to Cap and Trade methods, which have not proved successful since its inception in 2009.

"Blockchain, combined with tokenization, empowers a model where we all can be successful in cleaning carbon out of our air by improving soil health," says Ian Alexander, principal of Ember Labs. "It's time to put that ability into the hands of ESG oriented businesses, agriculturists, land managers of any kind, and the everyday people wanting to help our environment. The desire to do this is not new. What we have designed is the ability to streamline and make the process for a Total Ecological Solution actually work."

The Carbon Asset Network joins with nonprofit Synergy for Ecological Solutions to provide grants which allow land managers to take action for a Total Ecological Solution through soil health. Often these new methods increase operating costs and capital investment. The grants allow the land managers to take action right away to maximize soil health.

As soil becomes healthier, there is more oxygen released to the air, and more carbon pulled into the roots and soil (carbon sequestration) through the natural process of photosynthesis. Land managers include not only those in the agriculture industry, but managers of parks, golf courses, undeveloped land, or anyone who manages open land.

"It's actually very simple," says John Robitaille, Director of Carbon Asset Network. "Nature has its own way to increase air quality and that's photosynthesis. Working with Ember Labs, we have created a method utilizing blockchain that simply makes this feasible and effective in a private enterprise scenario, which lets those who want to help both our soils and our air quality. The whole process turns on simply cooperating with Nature. We say it's climate wellness through soil health."

Many air quality programs are designed to eliminate emissions from fossil fuel. This new method, however, is designed to take any carbon out of the air immediately and is not reliant on adoption of alternative energy sources so that the air can improve sooner rather than later.

Encore Green Environmental Appoints G-Force as the Re-Furbishing Partner for NOMAD Excel

FT. WORTH, Texas -- Encore Green Environmental names Texas based G-Force to re-furbish the legacy Nomad water treatment technology units to become the improved NOMAD Excel™.

Encore Green is an agriculture company dedicated to applying by-product water to beneficial use for agriculture and carbon sequestration. They recently purchased the Nomad units, which have cleaned over 30 million barrels of produced water, primarily in the Permian Basin. Combined with Encore's patent-pending Conservation By-Design™ method of ensuring safety in the water, Encore is the leader in applying clean water to the drought-stricken lands and holds the only permits in the US to accomplish this.

G-Force is a multi-service provider for the energy industry, including environment, health & safety, as well as facilities, pipeline, and construction.

"We sought out G-Force for their excellence in service and their expertise. We look forward to getting the Nomad back up and running again and seeing millions of barrels of safely cleaned water going out onto our lands," says Jaime Roman, of Encore Green Environmental, who is directing the re-furb project.

Brooks Goodson, COO of G-Force says, "We're excited to be improving upon the Nomad technology to create a process for safe treatment of water, along with economic viability. We have the track record to turn what's great into something even greater."

Newly re-furbished units will soon be available throughout the West, as commitments for those units are being booked for new projects to beneficially apply formerly produced water.

EarthOptics Wins the AGCO Challenge at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The AGCO Challenge at the eighth World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit was this: New sensing, measurement and edge computing technologies to monetize soil insight and carbon sequestration. And, EarthOptics rose to the occasion.

Specifically, the innovation challenge for start-ups was to develop a solution that improves understanding of the soil environment and its carbon sequestration potential or that creates a solution that better allows farmers to act on that insight.

AGCO's overall vision is to deliver sustainable high-tech solutions for farmers feeding the world. And, understanding soil health is key to that mission.

"What we want to be able to do is measure the yield activities and what that means for our carbon footprint," Seth Crawford, vice president, Fuse Connected Services and Digital Customer Experience, AGCO Corporation, said.

The winners were chosen from three finalists, after more than 100 international entries were received from agtech start-ups around the world.

Announcing the winner, Seth, a judge for the final pitches for the AGCO Challenge, said, "We believe that EarthOptics is delivering actionable insights today and the accuracy of less sampling will resonate with customers."

EarthOptics understands how farming works and is fully committed to helping farmers increase the value of their farmland and its natural resources.

Lars Dyrud, CEO, EarthOptics shared, "We're thrilled for the recognition, and to continue developing technology that helps growers' sustainably improve yields and lower costs."
