Nanobubbles for Water Quality
Water quality is of the utmost importance for considerations like crop health and maintenance of irrigation equipment. Nanobubbles are tiny air bubbles 2500 times smaller than a grain of salt. Moleaer makes a patented technology that applies these nanobubbles into water to improve quality. Here’s CEO Nick Dyner.
Dyner… “What happens when you start to keep those bubbles suspended as not only do you start to dissolve gas very efficiently, which generally is a very inefficient process with all other aeration or methods due to the bubble size. But you also start to create these other unique properties around using the bubbles to actually improve water quality through what we call oxidation. So think of how people use disinfectants like chlorine, bleach, peroxides, or ozone to tree water. We're just using air or oxygen, so a very natural, chemical-free solution.”
Dyner says this chemical-free solution is not just for greenhouse production, but field scale as well.
Dyner… “So we're getting rid of algae biofilms that these irrigation holding ponds or ponds and lakes are drinking water reservoirs. That water then ends up in the irrigation systems. So we're actually elevating oxygen levels for growers at greenhouses and starting to move to outdoor farming. The oxygen is helping root development and nutrient absorption of the crop, and the nanobubbles are helping kill pathogens and disease that are in that water that usually create plant stress or issues with the plant development.”
