Carbon Credits for Forest Fire Prevention & Resilient Forest Regeneration
We identify forests at risk using Satellite Data and AI and generate projects for urgent mitigation, and prevention action. We aim to mobilize $10 billion in voluntary carbon credits in the near term to directly invest in forest resilience and fire prevention action to ensure that animals have a safe habitat and forests remain natural carbon sinks.
ForestSAT AS is an award winning Norwegian “SpaceTech for Nature” AI Startup. Our Artificial Intelligence (AI) processes and analyses Earth Observation Satellite data to give deep insights into forests, predict wildfire risk areas and propose forest fire risk mitigation. Our data and science driven solutions promise to prevent devastating wildfires engulfing our planet, destroying trees and animal life, emitting tons of toxic smoke and CO2. Beyond prevention we implement smart nature data based solutions to restore & regenerate forest ecosystems as natural carbon sink.
ForestSAT wildfire risk index, Area & Assets at Risk model is built on satellite earth observation (EO), IoT sensors, metrological data and in-setu data analyzed by artificial intelligence (AI).
We monitor and measure forest health in proximity of millions of miles of grid and infrastructure to predict areas at risk of wildfires. Our solution protects critical assets through advance intervention and risk mitigation.
Forests are experiencing ferocious fire storms and mega fires that are wiping out hundreds of millions of trees and killing billions of animals in infernos. ForestSAT is a Norwegian #spacetch startup leveraging satellite earth observation & artificial intelligence (AI) to detect fuel build-up & forest degradation leading to forest fires. We aim to employ local populations and forestry experts, provide them with Earth Observation data & intelligence to take fire mitigation action, and make forests resilient against climate change.
Mobilizing US$10 billion for Forest Fire Prevention Globally in Voluntary Carbon Credits
While the vast majority of carbon emitted by wildland fires is released as CO2, CO, and CH4, wildland fire smoke is nonetheless a rich and complex mixture of gases and aerosols. Primary emissions include significant amounts of CH4 and aerosol (organic aerosol and black carbon), which are short-lived climate forcers. In addition to CO2 and short-lived climate forcers, wildland fires release CO, non-methane organic compounds (NMOC), nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO +NO2), NH3, and SO2. These species play a role in radiative forcing through their photochemical processing, which impacts atmospheric levels of CO2, CH4, tropospheric O3, and aerosol.
Wildfires emitted 1.76 billion tonnes of carbon globally in 2021, Copernicus said. That’s equivalent to more than double Germany’s annual CO2 emissions.
Forest fires, a major factor threatening the existence every type of forest ecosystem, have been getting worse in recent years. According to a report by the WWF, the duration of fire seasons across the globe has increased by 19% on average. In California, Oregon and Washington, emissions related to forest fires in 2020 were three times higher than the 21st century average. The peak days of wildfire in California were reported to generate emissions approximately 4 to 8 times higher than the average daily emissions reported from all the economic activities across the state. In Australia, the fire season has been starting early in places, with an increase in the duration of the fire season over extensive areas, according to the State of the Global Climate Report 2020.
We have processed 10+ years of satellite imagery & remote sensing data of forests to measure forest fuel buildup in wide proximity of electric grid, critical infrastructure. Our AI analyzes the impact of extreme temperatures, climate change induced droughts, and other contributing factors leading ecosystem degradation and forest fuel buildup. Petabytes of weather data, precipitation, soil degradation, tree density & canopy change, forest loss, and infestation impact provides an unparalleled comprehensive, localized & accurate insights.

We process decades of satellite imagery & remote sensing data with AI to analyze the impact of extreme temperatures, droughts, and other contributing factors leading to forest fuel buildup. Forest AI processes petabytes of weather data, precipitation, soil degradation, tree density & canopy change, forest loss, and infestation impact in concert with data from drones, helicopters, and in-setu sources to generate a comprehensive, localized & accurate insight into forest degradation & fuel buildup.
Verifiable & Transparent Carbon Finance
ForestSAT AI measures forest fuel buildup to map polygons of areas-at-risk in forests and generates actionable intelligence for risk mitigation through smart vegetation & fuel management.
ForestSAT forest fire prevention and regeneration projects are earth observation and in-situ data AI-driven. As such they are transparent, verifiable, and continually monitored carbon sequestration and conservation projects making a real near-term impact on saving forests from wildfires and building long-term resilient carbon sink.
