A designed product that can grow fresh food anywhere. Our system is called the Automated Hydroponic system where plants are cultivated indoors without soil, controlled using IoT and operated using renewable (solar) energy.

Our hydroponics innovation allows the plant’s roots to contact the nutrient-rich solution while accessing oxygen directly.

Our systems work by allowing minute control over environmental conditions like temperature and pH balance and maximized exposure to nutrients and water.

Plants are simply suspended in aerated water. A deep water culture system of hydroponics dangles net pots holding plants over a deep reservoir of oxygen-rich nutrient solution. An air stone connected to an air pump at the bottom of the reservoir to supply oxygenation to the entire system. The bubbles from the air stone will help circulate the nutrient solution.

Our system cultivates plants indoors using a nutrient rich solution containing both micro and macro nutrients we developed organically. and artificial UV light without soil. the solution is circled through the system by our IoT that controls the pump and programs the whole circulation through an app we developed. The IoT has no distance limitation as the system can be operated at great distance. Another important feature is that it uses renewable energy (solar) for its operation.

    As the world’s energy sector moves away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources, industrial companies are challenged with addressing this transition in transformative ways.The organic materials used to produce biomass are infinite, since our society consistently produces waste such as garbage, wood and manure. Not only is there is a limited supply of fossil fuels, but fossil fuels come with environmental baggage, including the release of large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the pollutants that result from removal, transportation and production this is minimized by the use of biofuels, also biomass technology is much cheaper and manufacturers and producers are able to generate higher profits from a lower output. Due to the rise in global warming and climate change and its effect on humans, I am poised to profer solutions and this gave birth to the idea of THE SMART BIOPYR SYSTEM.
