AQUA4D connects the dots between sustainable resource use, land restoration, and responsible production. For us, sustainable business means increasing growth and output while decreasing the impact on the environment. We truly believe this is achievable.

Minimal power use

An AQUA4D system as much power as a standard 10W lightbulb.

Minimal power use

An AQUA4D system uses only as much power as a standard 10W lightbulb – promoting efficient use of both water and electricity.

Water savings

AQUA4D helps growers achieve an average of 30% water savings.

Water savings

AQUA4D technology helps growers achieve an average of 30% water savings – often in regions where this resource is most scarce.

No chemicals

Use of AQUA4D entails less chemicals entering the water cycle.

No chemicals

Reduced use of chemicals and acids mean less chemicals enter the water and hence our lands.

Reduced emissions

Less water pumping and more efficient systems.

Reduced emissions

More efficient water use entails significantly less water pumping, along with less emissions from fertilizers and nematicides.

Land restoration

A sustainable solution to saline water and soil salinity.

Land restoration

Through its leaching effect, our technology is restoring lands blighted by soil salinization – good for lands and growers alike.

Higher yields

AQUA4D enables more growing with less resources.

Higher yields

With plants optimizing their intake, AQUA4D enables more growing with less resources.

Improving water use efficiency

“The responsible use of water resources is imperative to a more sustainable future and dealing with climate adaptation and water scarcity. AQUA4D® technology encourages this, improving water use efficiency while saving resources and contributing to many of the UN’s SDGs. We are proud to be at the forefront of a greener future.”

Javier Meyer, Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO)

Circular Sustainability: exponential payoffs

Key to a more sustainable future is our concept of Circular Sustainability. Just as a circular economy aims to redefine economic growth, we believe the efficient treatment of water can have exponential payoffs throughout our ecosystems. Click on the graphic to find out more.

Precision Irrigation for all

Water scarcity and the price of resources varies from country to country. With proven results from Argentina to Zimbabwe, our technology helps growers across the world on the way to higher yields, increased profits, and less resources.

With our favorable financing program, these benefits are within the reach of more producers than ever before – fusing sustainability with economic efficiency.

We are pleased to contribute to a total of 11 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out by the United Nations.

In agriculture, the AQUA4D system entails average increased yields of up to 20-30%.

AQUA4D technology keeps water systems free of potentially dangerous biofilm and pathogens.

AQUA4D treatment transforms hard or saline water, for more effective water systems in all industries.

During the estimated lifetime of an AQUA4D system, there is an estimated 50,000-150,000 kg CO2 reduction due to greater efficiencies.

AQUA4D helps promote sustained economic growth, notably in agriculture through increased yields and land restoration.

AQUA4D is continuously investing in scientific research promoting sustainable water treatment.

AQUA4D is completely sustainable, requires minimal maintenance, and has no consumables which need replacing.

AQUA4D systems use minimal electricity, and are produced 100% at our Swiss headquarters, powered by solar energy.

In agriculture, AQUA4D plays a crucial role in helping growers become water-smart, through saving precious resources and restoring salinized soils

AQUA4D’s leaching effects help rehabilitate lands from the effects of salinization, without the use of chemicals.

Aqua4D works with universities and institutes around the world to accelerate innovation and research towards greater efficiency and sustainability.

Partners in Sustainability

We work in close contact with organizations and institutions promoting sustainable development, responsible use of resources, and environmental protection.

Responsible production

“With manufacturing in-house at our Swiss headquarters, we can take full control of our production processes, ensuring optimal quality and efficiency. After installation of new solar panels covering our roof, we have on average been generating more energy per year than we consume.”

Nicolas Masseray, Production Manager

Forging a sustainable future

“Today many countries lack good quality water, the global population is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. Meanwhile, soil is being degraded and this is part of climate change. At current rates, we will not be able to feed the world population. We absolutely need innovative technology and cleantech to meet this challenge and produce more with fewer resources.”

Eric Valette, CEO
