iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

S.D.F. CAR is a soil-improving machine that can carbonize and decompose wheat and rice straw in real time. S.D.F. CAR can be connected to the rear of a harvester to receive wheat and rice straw discharged after harvesting, carbonize wheat and rice straw into a soil improver through an internal high-temperature electric furnace, and stir soil to improve the land. The gas generated in the carbonization process is filtered through a catalytic ceramic filter device.

The balance of efficient farming and environmental protection is the innovative approach of the concept. While further investment in R&D is required, the fact that this machine improves soil quality makes its chances of success high.
