Biorefinery: Renewable Nitrogen Ligno-cellulosic nitrogen and oxygen based ion-exchange soil and water conditioner

Plantee Aqua is an unique innovation for conditioning water and soil with dissolved oxygen and cation exchange capacity (CEC) and provides cellulosic poly-lignin based bio-protein (containing natural nitrogen) and nutrients in ion form to water and soil.

Renewable Nitrogen based (Plantee® Aqua Powder) is a renewable and clean nitrogen fertilizer and soil conditioner that has natural nitrogen, bio-proteins, and naturally occurring iron, zinc, copper, boron, and phosphorus.

Plantee Aqua powder has an excellent capacity for cation exchange in soil. Plantee Aqua powder controls and neutralizes acidity and contributes dissolved oxygen and nitrogen to water and soil.

Plantee Aqua powder is positively charged and improves the electrochemical processes of the soil and water. Plantee Aqua powder with cation exchange capacity (CEC) contributes to nutrient ions, for example, ammonia, calcium, magnesium, dissolved oxygen and nitrogen along with lignocellulosic bio-protein.

Plant Nutrition

Many microorganisms in soil and water carry a negative charge, which enables them to attract nutrients and to move freely about humus and clay colloids with cation exchange capacity.

The positively charged particles attract the humus particles. The symbiotic rhizobia and mycorrhizal fungi on the roots of the plants through ion exchange transfer the nutrient particles to the root during photosynthesis in the presence of sunlight.  

Soil Conditioning

Plantee Aqua powder conditions soils like red soil, laterite soil, alluvial soil, sandy soil and black cotton soil by providing calcium, phosphorus, boron, manganese, zinc and lignocellulosic bio-protein with organic matter (OM), and dissolved oxygen and nitrogen.

The soil pH must be neutral and Plantee Aqua  powder helps make acidic and alkaline soil neutral. This helps the keep the soil free of bacteria and fungi that cause root and stem rot and keeps the plants from drying up in alkaline soil.

“Plantee® is a micro-organism enriched bio-protein with chelating metal ions and carbohydrate. These are derivatives after the break down of agricultural waste lignin followed by numerous anabolic and catabolic reactions during composting the lignocellulosic liquor.

The friendly micro-organisms are in fact soil bacteria which can engage in (a) production of nitrogen, (b) fixation of nitrogen and (c) cause mineral/metal chelation. In the invented process, it is an object to induce such bacteria to provide proteinaceous nutrients(s) to the plants freely in order to restore the cycle of natural macrobiotic activity.

This creates a healthy plant life and the invented composition would result in establishing such prime soil factors as proper granulation, moisture content, water permeation and drainage, aeration and capillary water capacity. Besides these, the novel growth-stimulating composting provides optimum soil health, ensures supply of balanced plant nutrients in the form of free protein(s) and trace minerals and provides a favorable environment for the nitrogen-fixing bacteria.

Plantee® Aqua Powder has three applications:

  1. Plant Growth by fixing the nutriments
  2. Work as micro-organism activator to provide natural plant nutrients and organic soil conditioning process.
  3. Accelerating the de-composing process of organic solid wastes like agro-waste, compost humus.

This eco-friendly micro biotic system works as micro-organism promoter cum enzyme activator

  1. Enzymes
  2. Warm casting
  3. Humus
  4. Kelp
  5. Inert mater
  6. Soil fragmentation with organic nitrogen fixation
  7. Promote photosynthesis through pores of leaves and plant root, accumulates CO2 intake to plant.
  8. Fixation of food value to crop, vegetable, fruits etc.
  9. Improve freshness, store life by rot resistance character.
  10. Resistance against virus such as leaf curl virus.
  11. Enhance crop growth.
  12. Improve health of the pollen.

Water conditioning

Plantee Aqua powder conditions water and arrests and improves Biological Oxygen Demand  (BOD) and controls and neutralises Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in water. The microorganisms in water get sufficient oxygen. The bio-dynamics of the water body is maintained for fish cultivation.  The probiotic effect of Plantee Aqua powder helps to remove pathogens from water.

The toxic gases and harmful substances like hydrogen sulphide, sulphur dioxide and methane at the bottom of the water body. Plantee aqua powder helps zooplankton and phytoplankton growth in water. The plankton provide nutrients to fish. Plantee Aqua powder can  be used in fresh and salt-water.

Control and neutralize aquatic pollutants

Aquatic pollution is a major threat for the habitat and fish in a water body. For example 1) Bio-chemical oxygen demand (BOD), 2) Chemical Oxygen Demand, 3) Carbon Dioxide, 4) Ammonia, 5)Hydrogen Sulphide, 6) Methane, 7) Acidic water, and toxic gas either in dissolved from especially at the bottom of the water body. Planteeaqua powder neutralizes all these kinds of aquatic pollutants.

Biomass fertilizer replaces chemical fertilizer

The manufacture of chemical fertilizer is an energy-intensive process, consuming non-renewable natural gas and releasing greenhouse gases like Carbon Dioxide, Nitrous Oxide and Methane.

Nitrogen-based fertilizers are made from ammonia, which consumes five per cent of the natural gas produced globally. This quantity of natural gas amounts to two per cent of the total energy consumed globally. Methane is emitted during the production of fertilizer.

The chemical fertilizer run-off from the fields increases the nutrient levels in lakes and rivers and results in a spurt in algal blooms causing marine eutrophication.

These algae may take up all of the oxygen from the water and thus ruin other marine life. The residual nitrate leaches into the groundwater increasing nitrate concentrations above the permissible level.

Urea and DAP fertilizers make soil acidic. Plantee aids soil pigmentation and restores the soil’s natural appearance discoloured by fertilizer.

Plantee Aqua Powder increases crop durability and yield

Roy Research and Technology has successfully grown Swarna rice using solely Plantee in Birbhum district of West Bengal, India. This rice was tested and found to have higher starch, carbohydrate and protein content. It also withstood stress situations like flooding and drought.

Plant root growth by lignified Plantee Aqua Powder soil enricher

Plantee protects the plant from bacteria and fungus that cause stem and root rot by building immunity. Warm and wetter weather and flooding increases the spread of fungus and bacteria on plants and crops destroying crop yield.

Plantee produces flowers that stay fresh after cutting much longer and increases the vase life of flowers. Plantee helps the flowering plant bear warmer weather because of climate change.

 

Renewable Nitrogen Fertilizer Credentials

Plantee is tested by the Bose Institute in Calcutta, India which is sponsored by the Indian Government’s Science and Technology Department and by the Superintendence Company. Plantee is also tested and approved by the Midnapore District Seed Farm and W.B.A.I.C. Farm in Tarakeswar, Hooghly District, West Bengal, India. Plantee is a registered trademark and is an invention under several patents of Roy Research and Technology.
