iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

We all know that water is essential for life on earth but fewer realize that algae are essential for aquatic life. However, if there are too many algae, this robs the water of oxygen content and disturbs the ecological balance, leading to eutrophication and the creation of aquatic dead zones. The AERATi aqua drone is designed to remove excessive algae and protect watercourses such as rivers, reservoirs, and lakes. AERATi offers a complete ecological simulation system, including water monitoring and a database to analyze biological resources and environmental carrying capacity.

This innovative system was born of a detailed study of how to protect aquatic ecosystems. It is an excellent example of how technology can be successfully applied to solve environmental problems.
