The main objective of this project is to implement in the market new micro-irrigation systems 100% compostable as a solution to manage the plastic and the green waste in a composting plant at the end of the crop period. The new system will not require the separation or the burning of the pipes and green waste.
The main applications of the system to be developed in DRIUS will be crops of small plants such as strawberries and tomatoes with short periods of cultivations, less than a year. DRIUS is the continuation of a previous project called HYDRUS, where new biodegradable micro-irrigation pipes were developed and satisfactorily manufactured in industrial extrusion lines. The main focus of the present project is to manufacture biodegradable drippers by injection to obtain the complete system.
