About Quanticum

The problem we're solving:

Every year, 490 billion dollars are invested worldwide to solve problems related to the imbalance in the environmental and agronomic functions of the soil. Every year, more than 13 million hectares worldwide are inadequately managed, according to the UN FAO agricultural sector. We help solve problems related to the imbalance of soil ecosystem functions. Studys estimates the values ​​of the soil's environmental function at more than US$80 trillion per year.

Our solution:

Terrus, a 2020 innovation by Quanticum with support from FAPESP, transforms soil nanoparticle data into an index, revealing agronomic and environmental insights. Patented and backed by over US$2 million in projects, it has mapped 20 million hectares in Brazil. Explore our sector-specific solutions in forestry, bioenergy and carbon.
