Pieter Hoff.

Agricultural background, flower business

Breeding, producing and exporting of Lilies

Branches in China & South America

25 years travelling and export

Sold company in 2003

Inspiration for invention during travelling because of diminishing ground water levels

Personal objective: Make the World Green

The AquaPro principle: who needs it? Develop an alternative for irrigation with ground water Develop a new principle to produce drinking water Requirements: easy cheap sustainable 2 billion people and 500 million farmers world wide currently have no access to enough water with micro-credit and the AquaPro technique they will In this way we leave a better world for children having enough water to wash and drink and have food

Develop an alternative for irrigation with ground water

Develop a new principle to produce drinking water

Requirements:

easy

cheap

sustainable

2 billion people and 500 million farmers world wide currently have no access to enough water

with micro-credit and the AquaPro technique they will

In this way we leave a better world for children having enough water to wash and drink and have food

The AquaPro principle: water from air The AquaPro principles: With the ‘Waterboxx’ a tree is planted on top of the soil, so that the capillary is not destroyed when planting. In the middle of the ‘Waterboxx’ there is space to put a seed, a plant or a tree. This plant can develop its roots under the ‘Waterboxx’. The ‘Waterboxx’ produces water via artificial condensation and rainwater. It distributes the collected water to the plant on a daily base. It stimulates the rise of the capillary water to the top of the soil under the ‘Waterboxx’. It prevents evaporation of the capillary water. It prevents the development of weeds around the plant. It prevents grazing of the plants by a certain variety of animals. It prevents erosion of the soil around the plant and heating of the soil around the plant. It stimulates a balanced temperature in the root area. The advantage of planting on the soil means that it can also be used for planting on rocks. The same principle can be used to produce drinking water too   Application: Fruit / Food / Medicine / Wood / Anti-erosion / Energy / CO2 capture

The AquaPro principles:

With the ‘Waterboxx’ a tree is planted on top of the soil, so that the capillary is not destroyed when planting.

In the middle of the ‘Waterboxx’ there is space to put a seed, a plant or a tree.

This plant can develop its roots under the ‘Waterboxx’.

The ‘Waterboxx’ produces water via artificial condensation and rainwater.

It distributes the collected water to the plant on a daily base.

It stimulates the rise of the capillary water to the top of the soil under the ‘Waterboxx’.

It prevents evaporation of the capillary water.

It prevents the development of weeds around the plant.

It prevents grazing of the plants by a certain variety of animals.

It prevents erosion of the soil around the plant and heating of the soil around the plant.

It stimulates a balanced temperature in the root area.

The advantage of planting on the soil means that it can also be used for planting on rocks.

The same principle can be used to produce drinking water too

 

Application: Fruit / Food / Medicine / Wood / Anti-erosion / Energy / CO2 capture

The WaterBoxx design

The Easywater design

The figures speak for themselves In the past, planting trees was not possible on eroded land, rocks and deserts Irrigation is too expensive and the need of energy too high There’s not enough ground- or river water (and it is partly necessary for the people living in cities) With the WaterBoxx eternal water: from air Over 3 times lower costs than with irrigation Previously useless land changes to valuable land that can be used both as an input and collateral Previously useless land can be given to famers No energy needed

In the past, planting trees was not possible on eroded land, rocks and deserts

Irrigation is too expensive and the need of energy too high

There’s not enough ground- or river water (and it is partly necessary for the people living in cities)

With the WaterBoxx eternal water: from air

Over 3 times lower costs than with irrigation

Previously useless land changes to valuable land that can be used both as an input and collateral

Previously useless land can be given to famers

No energy needed

The current 7 world problems Food crisis Climate change Sinking ground water Rural;-urban migration Shortage of drinking water Cutting the last woods on earth Population growth to 10 billion

Food crisis

Climate change

Sinking ground water

Rural;-urban migration

Shortage of drinking water

Cutting the last woods on earth

Population growth to 10 billion

Who cares about future starts to think and act now Trees can solve a part of the 7 problems Trees create food, industries, energy, work But they need 40 years to grow If we want to combat the 7 world problems in 2050 we need to act now In this way millions of children will have better circumstances than they have now

Trees can solve a part of the 7 problems

Trees create food, industries, energy, work

But they need 40 years to grow

If we want to combat the 7 world problems in 2050 we need to act now

In this way millions of children will have better circumstances than they have now

Opportunities for countries using the AquaPro principle With the WaterBoxx developing countries can produce fruit, food, medicines, perfumes, wood, energy, combat erosion and capture CO2 with land that is currently hardly used These products will develop service industries Economical development helps reduce rural;-urban migration The WaterBoxx has the big advantage that it can be invested through microfinance: a small farmer cannot finance a well and expensive irrigation. He can however annually buy 10 WaterBoxxes With 10 WaterBoxxes he can plant 100 trees in 10 years The WaterBoxx is easy to use, simple to explain, has no moving parts and uses no energy The AquaPro principle helps solving the water problems and therefore it helps combating each of the 7 world problems partly or as a whole

Opportunities for countries using the AquaPro principle The Easywater disc can be used during severe draught as a survival instrument to make drinking water or irrigation water to let the vegetables survive It can be used during monsoons as a rainwater capturing instrument once the normally used water is contaminated Because of its brilliant flying capacities as a disc it can be used by children playing frisbee and be a lifesaver if necessary

Opportunities for companies selling instruments using the AquaPro principle The WaterBoxx can be used by farmers, NGO’s and governments for professional use The WaterBoxx can be used in urban projects like housing, golf courses, etcetera The WaterBoxx can also be used by consumers to plant trees in their gardens in dry circumstances or for maintenance of the garden of a second house during the time that one is not living there The EasyWater can be used to solve urgent drinking water problems during periods of draught or monsoons when water is contaminated The EasyWater can be used as a toy
