Description of the project

The purpose of the project is to reduce the use of agro-chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, etc.) in agriculture. LLC R&S Quantum suggested to implement chemical leasing concept in Ukrainian agro sector.  And RECP Centre was a source of information about UNIDO Global Chemical Leasing Programme.

The company has developed together with partners from academic institutions business model. The business model describes how agro-producers can reduce the consumption of chemical fertilizers and increase efficiency (yield and quality).

The Cluster model of ChL in the agricultural sector (The Model) – is a complex of services provided to the agricultural products producers (farmers and agroholdings – Service Users) by Service Provider (R&S Quantum) to gradually reduce chemical fertilizer usage and possibly fully substitute them with ecology-friendlier solutions.  

Solves global goals

Zero hunger

Reduce the use of agrochemicals as much as possible by substituting them with non-chemical, non-toxic and safer solutions. Increased safety for workers and people living in close proximity. Creation of more favorable conditions for the development of safe and environmentally-friendly organic farming. Capacity building of the workers by know-how transfer, more trainings provided. Constant on-site technical support from the supplier of chemicals.

Clean water ans sanitation

One of the project's objectives is to improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating waste dumping and minimizing the release of hazardous chemicals and materials, reducing the share of untreated sewage twice, and a significant increase in recycling and safe reuse of wastewater around the world.

Life on land

The project aims to ensure the saving, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and internal freshwater ecosystems and their services, including forests, wetlands, mountains and arid lands, in accordance with the obligations arising from international agreements. And to fight against desertification, to restore degraded lands and soils, including land that is affected by desertification, drought, flood, and to strive for the deterioration of land conditions throughout the world..

Partnerships for the goals

The project stimulates cooperation between business and academics, promotes commercialization of scientific developments and introduction of innovative technologies at domestic enterprises.
