Gaia Oxygenation Technology
Because Gaia systems are low pressure, they can be fed with either compressed oxygen in cylinders or through an oxygen generator. While oxygen generators have no ongoing operating costs other than electricity, the efficiency of the technology in its gas use makes liquid oxygen a viable option with low upfront cost.
Gaia’s generated ultra-fine bubbles stay in solution for extended periods of time, more than enough to reach plant roots through any type of irrigation or hydroponic system. Our technology can also be very effective in aquaponic systems (See Aquaculture Applications).
In certain applications, depending on the health of the growing medium, Gaia incorporates beneficial microbes in its solutions to create optimal growing conditions. Gaia has established a working relationship with Pathway Biologics who analyze, customize, and supply microbial amendments. Gaia’s technology not only maximizes usable oxygen delivery to plant roots, but it encourages the introduced beneficial anaerobic bacteria to rapidly multiply and accelerate soil enhancement.
Gaia technology has been approved by the State of California for use in Certified Organic operations and is being studied by the USDA and the Unversity of Florida for citrus applications.
Gaia products are currently widely deployed in Cannabis/Hemp Cultivation, Hydroponics, Aquaponics and Soil Remediation. Institutional testing is underway in numerous applications in difficult environments with promising early results.
