Aquamer (OTCBB: AQUM) (DBA/ Urban Agricultural Corp.) Environmental and Water Benefits
The Urban Agricultural system reduces the nutrient pollution associated with chemical fertilizers used on commercial farms. Of the 19% of U.S. rivers and streams assessed by EPA in 2000, roughly 48% (or over 125,000 miles) showed impaired water quality as the result of pollution from agricultural runoff (fertilizers, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). This impact is more than double that of any other source of water pollution.
Hydroponics production uses three to four times less water per unit of production than field-agriculture. Urban Agricultural's closed-loop irrigation systems lead to even greater water savings.
The watering injection system recycles water and generates little or no wastewater. Wastewater is one of the most significant environmental costs associated with traditional methods of hydroponics.
About Aquamer (OTCBB: AQUM)
(DBA/ Urban Agricultural Corp.) is entering the business of urban indoor farming, environmentally friendly and sustainable urban production of healthy agricultural products under highly controlled, indoor conditions using advanced techniques and processes.
