Podcast’s Essential Bites:

[5:07] “AQUA4D is a water smart technology, which changes the physical structure of water. It's not changing the chemical structure, it's not adding anything or taking anything away. It's modifying the way the water interacts with any minerals or organic matter it comes into contact with. We observed a lot of impacts on water molecule clusters at macro and microscopic levels. And by changing the way the water behaves, this can have huge impacts on water systems, on pipes, and most importantly of all, on soils.”

[6:18] “We set ourselves apart from magnet technologies. It works by sending very low frequency resonance fields into the water. As the water passes through AQUA4D pipes, […] it is treated by an […] electrical electromagnetic resonance field, which changes the the organization of the clusters of molecules within the water, and changes the way it interacts with any minerals, organic matter it comes into contact with. So most importantly, for […] our effect on agriculture, is how we change the interaction with minerals and salts. So we change the distribution of salts within the water. […] We alter and modify the size of the salts from, for example, the size of basketballs to the size of a golf ball. That is to say that the same amounts are present, but they are better distributed. And hence they're less likely to touch […] each other, and then crystallize within the water, and most importantly, to crystallize in soil and on the surface of the soil.”

[10:13] “Magnets may be fine for a small garden, for example, for treating the water there. What we use […] is effective over kilometres of pipe, this has been proven in various places in the world. So that's a huge advantage over magnet technology already. And there are no other solutions which do exactly what we do. So one interesting comparison we did recently with our agronomist in Peru, he ran a side by side study, looking at the impacts of AQUA4D versus the impacts of reverse osmosis. […] The fact is that [reverse osmosis] is a very intensive process. It's very energy intensive, and it's very water intensive. And in comparison with reverse osmosis, AQUA4D saves a huge amount of water, there is no wastewater involved, there are no consumables, there is almost no maintenance reactivity system. And most strikingly of all this […], AQUA4D uses 3,000 times less electricity in the running of the system. […] And […] there is no waste product. It is merely […] dissolving the minerals more efficiently into the water. This means we can use exactly the same water […] to irrigate their crops with. There's a huge advantage in countries with poor quality water, with brackish water.”

[14:32] “We can basically work with any water system, any industry that is using water. There are some trials underway in various industries. But we are mainly active in agriculture, it is around 70% of our business. But also we're working very interestingly with sustainable buildings, so water efficiency in buildings. […] Within buildings, we can we improve the water efficiency in water piping and systems for example, where there is corrosion and rust, or whether it's hard water or where people previously would be using water softeners. Our technology is much more cost effective and much more efficient over a longer time period.”

[37:32] “Agriculture is responsible for 70% of our water […], and […] irrigated agriculture is the majority of that. So […] we can have impact on that, […] that's gonna be huge in the coming years. And if we can, at the same time, managed to produce more with less, then this is truly game changing. […] We can have all these benefits […] and at the same time increase productivity, because we're making a healthy environment for the plant to grow and improving soil health, which in turn leads to greater productivity, higher yields, less waste […] and in the end, increasing food security.”
