Irrigate and grow Cassava
Explain your project in details:
My project consists of 3 parts: water treatment, food production, and irrigation system. Water purification for agriculture: It consists of 3 parts: 1. Physical: the first tank is screening tank. In this tank, large materials that can be easily removed from sewage is removed in order to not clog and damage the pumps and lines. In the second tank grit removal sand , gravel and other particles in the same size is removed by determining the detention time where TD settling velocity Where Stokes law. In the third one sedimentation tank the organic suspended solids above 0.1 mm by the same methods of the grit removal tank. 2. Biological: The aerobic consists of three main processes. The first one is the biomass destruction.The biomass is depleted by the micro-organisms so that they can build their own protoplasm for the cell maintenance. With more degrading by the aerobic bacteria to the Ethyl cyanoacetate (C5H7NO2 ) to produce ammonia Then The nitrifying bacteria oxidize ammonia to produce nitric acid. the nitric acid is too toxic to the aerobic bacteria that decrease the PH of the water. Such disease can kill the aerobic bacteria, so the anaerobic medium has to be provided for the denitrifying bacteria. This kind of bacteria produces the compound, Alkalinity (HCO3) that can neutralize the PH. 3. Platonic: Moringa Oleivera seeds, shown in figure 7,that have been used in water treatment work both as a coagulant and an antimicrobial agent. It has that property due to the highly concentrated positive charge in the seed ,60% of its mass. The flocs settle to the bottom then it can be removed by filtration. Food production: we will use the tissue culture for growing the plants. Water management: Using sun power generator to get electricity for sending the water to plants.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Well, this project depends on using sewage water, after treatment, in agriculture. Therefore, it will help the humanity to get rid of the dirty odor, and benefit from this water. First of all, the first stage of my project is the water treatment, which has important stages: physically, biologically, and botanically. I get rid of using chemicals since it causes a lot of diseases. The second stage, I will use the tissue culture to plant crops. I have reasons why I have chosen tissue culture: We can plant any crop in any country. For instance, we can plant cassava in Egypt although cassava needs high degree, which isn't in Egypt. We can get hundreds of crops with the same advantage. So this project will develop the agriculture in this world. I have made tests to make sure this project can be applied in this world. Results of my project: 1. Turbidity Test: Moringa Ollivera seed work as a coagulant /flocculant which gave turbidity removal of 96.6%, 97.5%, and 98.9% for the treatment of three sample of sewage water (after the anaerobic process) with low, medium and high turbidity, respectively and by using the dosage. 2. PH Test: The PH is a measurement that determines how acidic the water is. Cassava can grow on water its PH ranges from 5.5 to 8. 3. TDS Test: TDS is the total dissolved solids in the water. Cassava can grow with water its TDS reaches 2000 ppm. The readings of TDS through two different stages shows that the suspended salts are decreasing. Depending on the result that the prototype has produced, we can conclude some points.
Sustainability and future plans
This project will not need a lot of money to be applied. We will get electricity, for water management, from spherical sun power generator. This water management will need money less than the ordinary management with 50%. I will use new steps with new ingredients to make tissue culture in any crop will decrease needing to money with 50%.
Your profile as an entrepreneur
In this world, everyone has a passion which is paramount to his life. Always, I fancy myself in the future what I will try to serve this world. The future will be cultivated by the people who would love to make a prosperous mark. I passionate to serve the world and get rid of air pollution which causes a lot of repercussions as if someone riddles the Ozone. Diseases appear because of this pollution. I need to exert effort to achieve this dream. Surely, it is hard, but it isn't impossible. I would like to specialize in mechanical engineering; specifically, mechanical power engineering which affects the environment rapidly. "The power of creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present." Hence, I need to seal in this field. I know that is hard to achieve my goal, but it isn't impossible. "Everyone is a genius, he needs only to be injected the strength to hold out the far from being a failure." I need to learn in a community whose minds aims are near to goal. My goal looks like an arrow, and I only hold the bowl. Therefore, I will only identify my goal. I need the strength to push this arrow by science. Science opens me mental horizons to know more about cars. My life, of course, confronts obstacles like frustration. A lot of people are disappointing me and telling me "you cannot do it; we know it is your dream, but it is impossible." I believe in myself to do it. I have not to slack off that I can do.
