Gary Lewis, an inventor with Bio-Agtive, said they are showingcasing a fusion tank for tractors that takes emissions from diesel fuel and turns it into fertilizer for crops.

“We discovered that diesel fuel has microbes in it, and bio-diesel, and they come back alive in our fusion tank. And we’re adding in some other fermenting microbes and different organisms that survive the heat and temperatures. It really does control pathogens, but when we vape it onto a crop it actually goes into the leaf of a plant and stops heat blast.”

Lewis said this helps the environment, but will also help drive down costs for farmers.
