I-Fourth HyperGenerator - EcoProject
Explain your project in details:
Pitch: Our Generator is multifunctional & self-sufficient(clean water & energy, purified air and data through IoT sensors). #IFourth #startup I-Fourth's Hyper Generator is an innovative ecoproject in environment and energy sectors, initiated and run by the young team of I-Fourth, a newborn startup of global reach (https://www.facebook.com/Innovation4th/). It is anticipated to create a positive socio-economic and environmental shift that cuts across cultures. The key problems the Hyper Generator seeks to address are the water and energy scarcity globally, as well as climate change while positively impacting the environment. In short, the Hyper Generator will revolutionize urban management and develop smarter cities throughout the world. As more buildings use the I-Fourth Hyper Generator, there will be an increase in smart cities using technological ingenuities to create a clean and healthy environment for the city dwellers. The Generator: -extracts clean water from the air(500 liters per day) -clean energy (solar and wind) - approx. 2,5 Kw/h -purifies the air (99.7% efficiency) -collects valuable ecological data through its smart IoT sensors. The Generator is self-sufficient as it works thanks to the clean energy that it generates and only needs maintenance every 2 months. What actions do we propose? The above-mentioned technological innovation - HyperGenerator in order to make self-sufficient buildings with clean water, air, energy and valuable ecological data. The Generator can be applied everywhere, in different climates, from Rio de Janeiro of Brazil and Nouakchott of Mauritania to Yerevan of Armenia and Stockholm of Sweden to the south, Melbourne of Australia(a thorough research taking into account varying ecological data has been done before designing the product).
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
Developments toward More Efficient Cities and a Clean Environment Those who use the Hyper Generator will benefit from access to clean, drinkable water and clean air, as well as clean, wireless energy. Significantly, the Generator functions in an environmentally sustainable way by using natural physical processes in the production of water and energy; energy will be created by means of wind generators and solar panels, while water will be produced by converting vapor in the air to liquid water. Thus, customers also benefit from a healthier environment. Moreover, air purification processes will eliminate most disease causing microorganisms, including bacteria and common fungi helping to reduce the spread of disease. Lastly, the Generator will contribute to the development of smarter cities run with more efficient technology.
Sustainability and future plans
Who will take these actions? I-Fourth team will take these actions and will work with the following entities on: Short-term(Now): Construction businesses & Real Estate (smarter and cleaner cities clean drinking water, clean energy and purified air for the house/building habitants and valuable ecological data). Mid-term: whole communities(rural & suburban areas providing clean water, energy, air and valuable ecological data to the rural & suburban community). Long-term: vehicles & public transport (Planes; Trains; Buses; Cars) -generating the clean energy to replace fossil fuels; extracting clean water which will be distributed to the communities in need of clean drinking water; clean air and valuable ecological data. *We have come up with an idea to develop an aquaponics program in rural communities but this is at an idea stage and needs more research. VALUE PROPOSITION: Our value proposition is innovative because our generator has come out of the movement toward clean energy, thus contributing to a more sustainable environment. CUSTOMER SEGMENTS: Our customer segments would be legal entities (construction businesses) because we would like to have a B2B model (Business to business). DISTRIBUTION AND COMMUNICATION CHANNELS: We will have our own distribution channel through our website and store, which will be at the factory point. Currently I am in charge of fundraising efforts: I reach out to private investors and will soon run a campaign on Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
