The next great leap
BIOO HAS MANY GOALS IN THE AGTECH SECTOR, FROM OBTAINING ENERGY FOR IRRIGATION & COMMUNICATIONS, TO MANY OTHER APPLICATIONS.
AT BIOO WE DECIDED TO START WITH A HUGE PROBLEM, TO SOLVE THE USE OF 90% OF CHEMICAL BATTERIES USED IN AGRICULTURE BY POWERING AGRICULTURAL SENSORS WITH SOIL ITSELF.
Powering sensors with soil itself
Applicable to humidity, temperature and pH sensors among others, including a wireless communication system.
Developing the first 100% sustainable sensor for precission agriculture energetically powered by the land itself, saving costs by eliminating chemical batteries and their replacements, and avoiding the use of expensive solar panel installations or their maintenance.
100ms 28W discharge/day
*Every discharge is automatically re-charged by the soil every 24h in-field.
Durable, Inexpensive &
Bioo Sensor works only with soil, naturally present bateria, fertilizers and water. It has no dependency on photoautotrophs on the field. This makes it suitable to measure the terrain before and after planting the crops. It's twice as cheap as batteries and 10 times cheaper than solar panels on agricultural sensors.
A biological battery nourishing from soil
The battery's mechanism is powered by a consortium of microorganisms living in their natural medium.
Organic matter from fertilizers and the soil is dragged by irrigation and rain-water inside the battery.
Bioo's microbical fuel cell is powered by organic matter and fertilizers.
Microorganisms break down the organic molecules setting electrons free, thus generating an electrical current in the battery.
