- MaramuArt Smart AquaPonics - MASAP, a startup dedicated to providing organic products grown in an ecological environment.
- Our architecture is based on the Aquaponics system, which involves the cultivation of fish and plants together in a recirculating ecosystem. This system utilizes natural bacterial cycles to transform fish waste into plant food. We aim to grow all our products in an isolated and automated greenhouse, minimizing the reliance on climatic factors and avoiding the use of chemicals or pesticides.
- MASAP will also incorporate machine learning technology to support educational services for young farmers and the consumers. Furthermore, our system will utilize renewable energy sources, and partial shading of the greenhouse will be achieved through photovoltaic panels and geothermal.
- Aquaponics systems involve the growing of plants and the raising of fish with the help of beneficial bacteria.
- Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrition.
- This is an environmentally friendly, natural food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard any water or filtrate or add chemical fertilizers.
The widespread and intense application of pesticides in traditional agriculture poses a significant environmental concern, as these substances persist in the environment for extended periods.Furthermore, a substantial portion of fish products, amounting to 95%, undergo freezing or intensive farming practices involving the use of growth-promoting substances.
Indoor agriculture, despite its advantages, contributes to environmental challenges. The emission of substantial levels of CO2 and the generation of significant waste, often a result of non-circular architectural designs, highlight the need for more sustainable practices in this sector.
Lack of use of renewable energy and IT innovations in agriculture.
Agriculture dependent 99% of the climate conditions.
MASAP is a startup dedicated to AquaPonics (AP) architecture, committing to abstain from using chemicals or pesticides in the production of plants and fish.
With less than 5% water consumption compared to traditional agriculture, MASAP operates as a closed, automated, energy-independent greenhouse. This innovative system relies on the assistance of photovoltaic panels and geothermal energy, and its circular architecture makes it non-dependent on climate conditions.
The circular architecture further results in less than 1% waste, showcasing MASAP's commitment to sustainability.
To optimize performance and innovation, MASAP plans to incorporate modern technologies such as Machine Learning. This integration aims to enhance the system's efficiency and establish a comprehensive database for advancing AquaPonics systems.
Having successfully completed POC 1 with highly positive results, we are currently engaged in a more complex POC that is scheduled for completion in 2024. This expanded proof of concept involves a greater variety of plants and fish, reflecting our commitment to continuous improvement and diversification.
We are planning to sell various varieties of organic greens cultivated in a secure ecological environment, including different types of lettuce, various aromatic plants, microgreens, and other greens such as bok choy or kale. Additionally, we will offer live sturgeons, carps, and organic compost.
