Aqua-Soil Approach 

In a large part of the world year-round sufficient fresh water is not within reach. On the other hand today’s cities consume large quantities of fresh water which is consequently contaminated and becomes waste water. If not treated or managed properly this waste water harm ecosystems and cause problems downstream. Cities, agriculture and landscaping also produce a lot of organic waste material. This material is often not reused but combusted or dumped on landfills, thus becoming a threat to people and the environment and causing greenhouse gas emissions.

At the same time agriculture needs water and fertilizers for the crops for the growing population. Farmers often purchase costly mineral fertilizers from non-renewable resources. In the long run, however, extensive use of such fertilizer lead to soil degradation and decreasing yields, whilst prices of fertilizers are steadily increasing. Today farmers struggle with loss of soil                                                                                     fertility, increasing prices for fertilizers, water shortage and decreasing yields.


This conventional approach results in the loss of valuable resources and the pollution of water systems. This practice is not sustainable in ecological and economical terms and we present a more comprehensive, sustainable approach.

Our joint Aqua-Soil Approach is based on reuse of fresh water and organic matter for the benefit of sustainable agri-/ horticulture. Our joint approach can be guaranteed pathogen free! The combined water and composting utilities produce the resources, incl. nutrients, for sustainable farming tools.
 
The system is constructed modular and scalable, thus applicable for almost any application. 
The Aqua-Soil Approach boost circular regional economic development in horticulture or industry and is sustainable through:

  • Multiple barrier, incl. biological purification (pathogen free process) for irrigation water
  • Collecting organic waste and selling compost for soil improvement
  • Business Development in food production, aquaculture (Local for Local or export)
  • Business incentive for governmental empowerment programs 
  • Nutrient reuse and climate proof resources
  • Social sustainability (jobs) in healthy living landscapes
  • Carbon footprint & Water footprint
  • Cradle to Cradle
  • Food security and health improvement
  • Capacity building /knowledge transfer
