The monitoring service is the first product from WALDSTOLZ. Forest plots are continuously and comprehensively monitored with satellites and critical changes, e.g. caused by bark beetle infestation, are detected. In this case, forest owners receive a warning by e-mail and SMS and can intervene in a timely manner and keep the damage in the forest to a minimum.
The iotec team consists of a wide variety of personalities who work together on the optimal solution. To do this, they combine the development of individual sensors with research into the latest technologies. iotec is convinced that the use of sensors improves decision-making for adaptive forest management.

Nature Robots promotes regenerative and ecological agriculture through AI and robotics in harmony with nature and people by supporting multi-annual and diverse cultivation systems in their profitability through innovative software and hardware solutions.
Based on temporally and spatially high-resolution three-dimensional plant maps, assistance systems and autonomous robotic applications for natural, arbitrarily structured environments such as vegetable, fruit and wine growing or (agro)forestry are being developed. As a first application, the technology is used in the company's own agricultural robot Lero for bio-intensive vegetable cultivation, the so-called market garden.
SilviBio Limited is a science-based company from Scotland, specialising in the development of novel products to improve crop yields in forestry and agriculture.

carbonauten has developed an industrial system that immediately reduces emissions and costs. For this purpose, biomass residues are carbonized at decentralized locations worldwide and refined into high-quality and cheap NET-Materials® (Negative Emission Technology: 1 ton of biocarbon permanently stores up to 3.3 tons of CO2), which replace fossil-based plastics, agricultural chemicals and building materials. Attractive by-products of the production process are base load renewable energy and bio-oils as platform chemicals.
biodivers brings more biodiversity and environmental protection to fields and forests. They are building the first, freely available, nationwide platform that clearly shows farmers and foresters all available state and private environmental support measures, gives concrete application tips and shows the ecological added value.
This tool optimizes the planning of environmental measures from an economic, ecological and work management point of view. The EcoCredit system, which they are developing in close cooperation with scientists, makes environmental performance measurable and tradable.
