ASC Magazine, Okt. 2015 – Software Developer Building Vertical Aeroponic Growing Barrel
Current development status and next steps
After investing in prototype tooling for the initial few barrels and having tested that the system acually works well, aponix is now working to bring down production cost in order to offer barrels at a reasonable and fair price. This included for example looking into techniques like vacuum-molding for the lids and stands. Aponix’ modular aeroponic barrel will be ready for the markek at the end of 2015.
The aeroponic growing barrel of aponix is setting a new cornerstone for high density and efficient organic food production: The barrel shaped corpus can be stacket up to a flexible height. Due to its innovative modular design the two/three parts can easily be assembled and also be disassembled. It can be used in both hydroponic or aquaponic recirculation soil-less systems to set up growspaces easily and quickly.
