Descriptif
EVAPOCONTROLEVAPO-CONTROL is a modular floating system for the coverage of large surfaces of water or waterbased liquids which prevents direct evaporation losses and algae growth due to sunlight exposition. It is especially conceived for the use in irrigation water reservoirs existing in agriculture sector. It provides the tool to farmers for the saving of a 5-7% of their annual irrigation requirements, contributing to the achievement of the goals of Water Framework Directive and Common Agriculture Policy in the area of an efficient water management. EVAPO-CONTROL improves the current market options by a special manufacturing process and an efficient design resulting in a reduced material need for the product fabrication which provides the unique solution suitable for the agriculture sector due to its reduced price. EVAPO-CONTROL meets the requirements of ease of use and weather conditions resistance present in this particular sector. EVAPO-CONTROL also takes care of environment, with a reduced use of material in its fabrication and in its way to be reduced even more, it is 100% recyclable and it is under study the future use of recycled material in its manufacturing. EVAPO-CONTROL has been developed by ARANA WATER MANAGEMENT, a new SME specialized in water management which has combined the deep knowledge in agricultural irrigation and plastic transformation industries for the development of EVAPO-CONTROL.
