Who we are.

GHG Registry was founded by a group of passionate scientists in the agriculture, forestry, and blockchain space. We are passionate about leveraging modern technology to create and fund projects which can lock carbon away permanently to make a legitimate difference.

Our registry is run with the understanding that technology right now is developing faster than it ever has in the past and so we have built our system with the ability to adapt to new technologies quickly. Our 2 game changing piece of technology right now are AI Pedometrics which can effectively replace soil sampling for baselining soil carbon and also a web 3.0 registry that allows for complete transparency.

We believe in building an equitable carbon credit system that allows any farmer in the world to participate regardless of their access to technology. With this approach we hope to get order of magnitudes more engagement than existing registries and thus make a much more significant global impact.

Our Founders.

Dr. Asim Biswas

University of Guelph

Asim was born and brought up in a small subsistence farm family from a remote village (Poragachha, Asannagar, Nadia) in West Bengal, India. Working and participating in farm activities and the ‘magic in soil that turns a small seed into a big plant or a huge tree’ always fascinated him about soil. Same way ‘why a field soil can grow plants better and another is not’ made him curious.

Now, he is a leading scientist in data driven sustainable soil management and works to increase the productivity and resilience of land-based agri-food production systems in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Dr. Sabine Grunwald

University of Florida

Sabine Grunwald, Ph.D., is Professor in the Soil, Water, and Ecosystem Sciences Department, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), University of Florida (UF), USA and Director of the UF Mindfulness Program. She blends expertise and interests in environmental, agro- and geo-sciences, mindfulness, and spirituality. Dr. Grunwald has carried out extensive research in AI pedometrics (machine learning and deep learning), digital soil carbon mapping and modeling from field, regional, to global scale in agro-forest and aquatic ecosystems and conservation land. Her research uses soil proximal sensing and remote sensing technologies. Dr. Grunwald earned a Ph.D. in environmental sciences from the University of Giessen, Germany (1996) and a Ph.D. in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco, CA, USA (2021).

University of São Paolo

Dr. José A. M. Demattê is currently a Professor in the Department of Soil Science, Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture, University of São Paulo, Brazil. Graduate at Agronomia from Universidade Federal de Lavras (1990), master’s at Agronomia Soils and Plant Nutrition from Universidade de São Paulo (1992) and doctor. at the São paulo University, ESALQ (1995).

Professor in Soil Tecnology and Remote Sensing applied to Soils. Has experience in Agronomy, acting on the following subjects: remote sensing, soil survey and mapping, geoprocessing and precision agriculture. He has basic formation in Pedology with carrier in Remote Sensing Applied to Soils in last 30 years. He has extensive experience from research to practice in field, agriculture industries, soil management, mapping, precision agriculture, soil tillage, productivity systems and with soil laboratories, as to make the bridge between the real issues and academy.

Currently he leads the Brazilian Soil Spectral Library, the Brazilian Program on Soil Analysis via Spectroscopy, and he is also member of a working group of the Pronasolos Brazilian Soil Mapping and MapBioma Programs. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

Dr. Naresh Thevathasan

University of Guelph

Naresh grew up in the South Asian country of Sri Lanka. He comes from an agricultural background and developed an interest in tree-based inter-cropping systems after the Sri Lankan government began moving toward diversification of agricultural systems. This is how Naresh developed his interest in agronomy and agroforestry.

Naresh’s research mainly focuses on carbon sequestration and nutrient cycling dynamics in temperate agroforestry systems and purpose-grown biomass crops research and development.

Adam Gillespie.

University of Guelph

Adam’s research focuses on soil organic matter and soil health. Soil organic matter is widely recognised as an integral part of sustainable agriculture, soil health and ecosystem resilience. It is critical for soil function, providing a source of nutrients, substrates and energy for the microbial population.

Adam’s research program is one which examines land use and ecosystem influences on soil organic matter (SOM) dynamics and their relationship with soil fertility and carbon cycling in both the lab and field settings.
