GOLF AND SPORTS
At the golf courses, we work in three clearly differentiated areas of activity, where the objectives and goals pursued differ significantly. These areas are: Irrigation, Stagnant Water and Disinfectant, bactericidal and fungicidal action that covers the health of the land and includes the treatment of tee grass, fairways and greens.
OXYGENATION TECHNOLOGY NAECOER
Oxygen is essential to avoid root suffocation. In crops, water carries oxygen to the roots. Therefore, low values of dissolved oxygen in the nutrient solution can be very detrimental to the optimal development of the plant. Our technology allows us to quadruple the usual levels of dissolved oxygen in healthy water. A high oxygen content will positively impact plant growth.
On many golf courses, water for irrigation is obtained from their own man-made ponds. But stagnant and poorly renewed waters usually have values of 3 – 4 ppm, which are insufficient for effective irrigation. In this context, the nanobubble of NAECOER allows it to be raised to values above 30 ppm.
Ozone is recognized as the greatest oxidizing agent above hydrogen peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide or sodium hypochlorite, that is fifteen percent bleach. Ozone in doses between 0-5 and 1 ppm is lethal to most pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and algae. At this point, our technology allows reaching ozone concentration levels that are precise for the elimination of pathogens that may be affecting the quality of our lawn without the need to use chemical pesticides.
Its application is simple like that of current fumigation systems, but with ozonated water. This significantly reduces the risks arising from the handling of chemical agents. Once reacted, the ozone turns into oxygen that can be absorbed by the plant giving it vitality.
It is the process through which anaerobic bacteria produce the decomposition of organic matter, producing bad odors, such as the smell of rotten eggs.
When stagnant water is not adequately renewed and the proliferation of organic matter is high, putrefaction rates rise because the levels of available oxygen are well below theoretical indicators. This degenerative cycle does not allow regeneration, because the little oxygen available is consumed by the high chemical demand for oxygen existing in the water and at the bottom.
A "healthy" water goes through four stages in its degeneration process until its complete decomposition and consequently the generation of odors.
A. Aerobic: Usual Oxygen Levels
B. Anoxic: Oxygen deficiency
C. Anaerobic: Without oxygen
D. H2S generator: Putrefaction and decomposition, ie rotten egg smell.
Here we see two images of the same area. Above, the totally degraded area is shown with very dirty waters and abundant algae on the surface that limit proper oxygenation. Below, the same area can be seen fully recovered after being treated with nanobubbles.
In a few words, the application of our technology allows water supplies with levels of soluble oxygen much higher than what water should have under normal conditions. This allows a large surplus of oxygen to be available in the environment to meet the high demand of the degenerated subsoil. The high content of soluble oxygen helps to start the regeneration of the environment gradually until reversing the oxygen deficiency to create a "healthy" aerobic environment that generates life and is odour-free.
This action is usually complemented with a supply of ozone in high concentrations, which is lethal to most batteries and pathogens present in degraded water. What allows a total disinfection of the environment.
In addition, other beneficial effects are produced, such as the total control of the proliferation of mosquitoes, eliminating them completely from the larval stage. This is a point of vital importance in golf courses located in residential areas, where the humidity conditions are very favorable to the massive presence of mosquitoes.
