Smart and Modular Hydroponic
Due to intense human activity, the urban environment is significantly hotter than its surroundings.
This problem is referred as UHI – Urban Heat Islands.
UHI impairs life quality in the urban surroundings and has direct impact on:
Shading area shortage
Air pollution and lower air quality
BioShade offers a novel biological shading solution by using a smart hydroponic system customized for shading plants.
BioShade automated system is powered by solar energy and able to interface to any shading element in the city,
Plants growing in BioShade systems have:
X2 enhanced growth rate
80% saving in water compared to soil irrigation
High survival rate without pests
BioShade systems create a shaded microclimate with a decrease of 11 °C in physiological heat stress.
By placing BioShade on rooftops, you can save up to 80% of the top floor air cooling expenses.
BioShade systems supply biological shade for UHI mitigation and perform significant carbon offset.
