Vision

evoWater is a water treatment process that increases significantly the yield of irrigated crops and improves their biological qualities, while eliciting the chemical additives and potentially environment polluting processes used during production (e.g. antiscaling, pesticides).
evoWater may thus contribute to the introduction of sustainable and safe production models, having a glogal effect on society. It is instrumental in the reparation and preservation of soil diversity.
evoWater may be used by both small producers and in large scale production facilities. It has a substantial effect on productivity and food safety at all levels of the value chain. The evoWater water treatment process is conform with the requirements of organic farming.
With respect to the social and macroeconomic effects of water management, evoWater reduces significantly the quantity of water needed to irrigate to produce the similar yield, increases the plants resistence to illnesses and provides an environmental friendly and cost effective approach to pest management (sustainable production). It helps decrease food waste during production, transport and storage of crops, and increases shelf time.
According to laboratory tests, evoWater increases significantly the plants potential to capture CO2, contributing to efforts to mitigate and reverse climate change.

Water treatment with evoWater

Sustainable production models and healthy food become increasingly the focus of todays societies. evoWater is an innovation in water treatment that provides a state of the art solution to the efficiency of irrigation, improving yield and quality for a wide variety of crops. The new processes help reduce radically the environmental effects of pest management and fellow chemical heavy processes.

Crops irrigated with evoWater are less vulnerable to transport and storage, and have extended shelf time. Food waste is decreased during production and logistics, as well as in commercial units.
Results are based on the plants increased efficiency to make use of the nutrients present in the water treated with evoWater.

Difference between crops irrigated with treated and untreated water are visible from the seedling stage. Plants are rooted within days, have a darker green colour, the plants have more binding lines, more flowers, a more and stronger stems, bigger and thicker leaves.

Yield increases by a factor of 10-30%, while plants have a longer productive stage.

Internal parameters such as sugar content may increase as much as 20-40%

Shelf time doubled.

Plants becoming more resistent to illnesses and pests may lead to a dramatic decrease or complete omission of pesticides and drugs, that in turn decrease production costs and render production compliant with environment conscious and sustainable approaches (such as biocultures).

In general, chemicals and related processes can be replaced by water treatment (pesticides, scale removal, chemical based water treatment, processes used to extend shelf time and reduce logistics related food waste). Together these decrease food related ecological and health hazards, as well as production and logistics costs.

By improving the capability of irrigated crops to catch CO2, one of the key factors in managing the GHG balance, evoWater can contribute to the mitigation of climate change. At macro level, this may as well have significant environmental, economic and social impacts.

A new irrigation policy based on treated water may help local soil regeneration efforts and improve biodiversity.

 

Water treatment equipment may be grouped into 3 categories:

– Physical or biochemical processes (filters, osmosys, use of natural elements, sedimentation, mineral dosage)

– Chemical processes (scale removal, water softening, neutralisation processes folyamatok stb)

– Combinations of the above

evoWater falls into the first category, no chemical processes are used. It can be used in a wide spectrum of crop production, during the entire lifecycle of crop growing without any further stress on the environment.

Advantages of evoWater: 

1. Quality of crops

Overall quality of crops improves, including internal content, transportability, extended shelf time, healthiness etc, that can be quantified through the decreasing cost of non marketable products, as well as the decreased cost of chemicals and drugs used.
Increased sugar content, BRIX values obtained, better look and taste, healthier plants will lead to better customer satisfaction. Brix itself determines the market price of crops produced, higher value can be obtained form the same land.

2. Quality of life

Improvement in quality and internal content leads to its antioxidant-, trace elements and vitamine content. Increased transportability makes possible to reach more people in geographically disperse areas, without compromising on the quality of the products.

Apart form increased profitability, there is a huge economic and social potential in the potential to increase quality of products while decreasing prodcution prices at the same time, extending the customer base.

Considerably better and healthier products may become available to low income segments of the population.

The above may have significant implications on social conditions, food supply és public health.

With less food waste, less land is needed to produce the quantity of products needed for a given population.

3. Macro-economic implications

Efficiency of irrigation influences directly the efficiency and costs of water management, including the quantity of water used, energy consumption of irrigation processes, investment and running casts of equipment used, labour costs etc.

On the other hand, increased yield may be obtained with less investment and operating costs. Costs related to regeneration of land is decreased through the decrease of environmental stress due to production.

Yield can be increased without major investment in equipment, bioengineering, chemical products or additional labour costs.

Reliability on import can be reduced and/or export capabilities can be increased.

CO2 quotas can be met more easily, or leave room for quota management.

The introduction of evoWater into agriculture processes is a modest investment compared to macro level gains obtainable.

4. Small producers, biocultures

The agricultural landscape of a country typically includes a number of small producers, active primarily on the local market. On the other hand, every country relies extensively on domestic products, that constitute a key element in the food supply chain, especially in low income segments of the population.

Cost is an even important factor in primeur products. Such products become available to a larger protion of the populaton

As the use of evoWater involves no stress on the environment, it can be used to bbost the competitiveness of biocultures. evoWater received the bioculture certificate from Biokontroll Hungary.

5. Decreasing stress on the environment

More intensive agriculture leads to climate change, desertification, decreasing water supplies, excessive use of fertilizers and chemicals that in turn overload the soil. This process may be further aggravated in countries expecting demographic boom.
evoWater is not a miracle tool, but more efficient irrigation and water management, coupled with decreasing stress on the environment is an opportunity to tackle several problems at the same time.
This may be primarily significant in areas where plant health, production costs, available water supplies are at critical levels. In such cases irrigation efficiency is not only a question of profitability, but a decisive factor to address social and environmental challenges.
Todays agriculture faces new challenges: demographic stress and environmental constraints represent can be addressed only through sustainable solutions. Major trends include the continuous deterioration of soil, introducing sustainable crop production in more exteme environments, and mitigation of climate change through better CO2 absorption capabilities. evoWater may make a contribution in all three areas.

6. Soil and irrigation infrastructure

According to experience in Pilot installations, soil regeneration processes and biodiversity improved significantly (especially with regard to humus and bacteria) following irrigation with treated water. Crops defensive mechanisms and health improved, and could lead to abandoning partly or totally the use of chemical based treatment.
On the other hand, chemical based scale removal, cleaning of irrigation equipment becomes unnecessary, as scale formation is limited, minerials are used directly by the crops. Scale removal technologies available on the market are much less efficient, most can be applied up to 1 col pipes.

7. Global reach

evoWater can be deployed in various economic and social environment, under different climate and water management conditions. It does not require skilled labour, maintenance need is minimal. evoWater can contribute to both state of the art and under developed production facilities.

evoWater can be used as an efficient water management tool.
