Beenish Siddique Wins August's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Fri, 30 August 2019

Beenish Siddique won August's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for her business, AEH Innovative Hydrogel.
AEH Innovative Hydrogel provides a technology that not only increases crop production but makes it possible to grow crops in infertile and water stressed lands. Its SAVEgel technology provides a solution to store carbon in soil and reduces the need for fertilisers. Hydrogels have the ability to retain high amounts of water in their structure, and SAVEgel can store water to be released only when crops need it. The company’s solution differs from current technologies as it not only optimizes the use of water, but also has the potential to make infertile land fertile and is able to reduce greenhouse emissions by fixing carbon into soils.
Commiserations to Mauro Cozzi (emitWise), Leo Thomas-Lawton (Tapari Ltd), Isaac Ramonet (Airbastion Ltd) and Amber Zakrzewski (Equi Energy Ltd).
