Creating an thriving local economy
ITOCO’s technology is creating an effective solution for the capture, quantification and monetization of Nopal Cactus carbon offsets. To help the local economy the Nopal harvest is being used to create food sources, clean energy, and commodities such as consumer products and fertilization to support and build local industry.
For the past 6 years, ITOCO has conducted research in Mexico with the support of the Secretary of Agriculture (SAGARPA), the Secretary of Energy (SENER), the Secretary of Environment (SEMARNAT) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization to increase production on over 21 crops.
As a first stage, the company’s business model is to establish over 2,446 strategic modular manufacturing locations throughout 32 States in Mexico for the collection and transformation of Nopal harvest into food sources, organic fertilizer, biogas or ethanol for the local markets. These products will be sold to local farmers, Municipalities, heavy industry and State and Federal Governments Officials to operate their fleet of vehicles.
As one the world’s most innovative companies in Carbon Sequestration, Organic Fertilizer and Clean Energy Production we are currently well poised in the North American Market, and are currently expanding globally. Working with 11,735 producers with 45,327 hectares of Nopal Cactus production and serving customers in more than 18 states in Mexico, our experience is unmatched.
