  2. 2. Aqua-4D® Physical water treatment- Agriculture, Horticulture and Irrigation - Substantial savings of fertilizers and phytosanitary products High performance with brackish water Repulsive effect on nematodes Elimination of deposits and clogging (fertilizers, scaling, iron, manganese) Prevention and elimination of biofilms in irrigation networks A sustainable and ecological solution to increase the profitability of farms www.planethorizons.com 2
  3. 3. Water propertiesWater, at the base of the life, is the most current of the liquids but remains diverting andmysterious from its anomalies.Electrical dipole Hydrogen bridge Water, due to its properties, is very sensitive to electromagnetic fields www.planethorizons.com 3
  4. 4. Aqua-4D® principleBecause of its dipole properties,water behaves like a magnet andcan be influenced (electro-) magnetically. Planet Horizons Technologies patented key know-how is the frequency and intensity combinations which can resolve specific problems. www.planethorizons.com 4
  5. 5. Effect on the retention potential of water in the soilWithout Aqua-4D® water treatment With Aqua-4D® water treatment  The soil can stock more water  Less losses of water  The effect can be crucial during droughts www.planethorizons.com 5
  6. 6. Soil cultures - IrrigationReference Treated with Aqua-4D®  Improved fertilizer Water + Fertilizer dissolution in water and soil  Minerals available for the plant under amorphous form  Stronger development of the roots, better absorption capability  Greater resistance to Crystallization of minerals root diseases30% losses of water and fertilizers Less than 10% losses of water and fertilizers www.planethorizons.com 6
  7. 7. Hydroponic cultures Reference Treated with Aqua-4D® Dosage Dosage pump fertilizer of water EC measurement from rain 100% water + fertilizer SaltThe water is continuously recycled: Strong root growth : Increased salts concentration  Increased resistance against root Increased concentration of some toxic diseases and root rot elements  Reduced salt toxicity, reduced limestone Crystallization of salt, toxic for plants and and fertilizers roots www.planethorizons.com 7
  8. 8. Substantial savings of fertilizers and phytosanitaryproductsAqua-4D® allows a major reduction (30 to Aqua-4D® water treatment50%) of fertilizers, acids and phytosanitaryproducts usage, thanks to: With Without A better solubilisation of additives (minerals) in water A stronger radicular growth www.planethorizons.com 8
  9. 9. High performance in brackish waterWith 2.5 g of salt per liter Aqua-4D® water treatment« ... Instead of investing in reverse With Withoutosmosis….... ... With water from geothermicalsource and very brackish, we have managedto reduce the intake of fertilizers by 25% withincreased yields of tomatoes while getting rid FITONIAof scale in our water pipes. »Hassan AkhrassEl Hamma - Tunisia CRESSON www.planethorizons.com 9
  10. 10. Repulsive effect on nematodesTrials of Dr.Stielow, organic agriculture consultant HamburgWithout Aqua-4D® water treatment With Aqua-4D® treatment 10 samples checked.  All samples without Aqua- 4D® treatment suffered all from nematodes attacks.  With Aqua-4D® none. Fields were next to each other (identical conditions) www.planethorizons.com 10
  11. 11. Pipes are free from scale, corrosion and biofilmsAqua-4D® Protection of equipments Aqua-4D® modifies the crystalline structure of scale and the electrical charges at the interfaces in order to eliminate existing deposits and prevent creation of new ones Passivation of internal surfaces in pipes protects from corrosion Existing biofilm is detached and new biofilm is inhibited The combined effect (corrosion, scaling and biofilm) prevents the proliferation of bacteria www.planethorizons.com 11
  12. 12. Aqua-4D® water treatment systemTwo basic modules: An almost unlimited use .... A pre-programmed Command module to  The Aqua-4D® technology works with any generate the signals. water chemistry and degree of hardness. Special Tubes to transmit the signals to the  Effects are obtained with all pipe materials aquatic environment. Depending on the such as steel, copper, plastic … maximum flow rate, a specific number of  The efficiency is observed over several parallel Tubes is required. kilometers of pipe from a single installation. www.planethorizons.com 12
  13. 13. Aqua-4D®, line of products : ModularSerie 60 et 360 Flow rates from 0 to 4150 m3/h Chemical-free Maintenance-free Very low power consumption (8 to 40W) Eco-friendly Custom made solutions for larger flow needs www.planethorizons.com 13
