The Groasis waterboxx is an 'intelligent water incubator' that produces and captures water from the air through condensation and rain. The condensation is caused by artificial stimulation and the water is captured because of the design of the device, without using
The Groasis waterboxx makes it possible to plant trees or bushes on rocks, on mountains, in gardens, in ashes of recently burned woods, eroded areas or deserts or any other place, without the help of irrigation with a 100% planting result. In moderate climates the Groasis waterboxx causes 15 to 30% faster growth and thus more biomass. The Groasis waterboxx offers the possibility to make more money with trees or bushes through food, fruit, nuts, wood, extracts, medicines, oils and many other economically interesting products.
The Groasis waterboxx has been tested for 3 years in the Sahara desert by the Mohammed I University of Oujda in Morocco, with convincing results. Trees that were planted during the Summer with the Groasis waterboxx survived well. The trees planted were measured and showed an average growth of more than 90% in length within the first year. The test without the Groasis waterboxx was watered on a weekly basis but 90% of the trees still died. In this link you find the climate info of Oujda that you can compare with your own climate in order to see if the Groasis waterboxx can also be of help in your region.
Tests have shown that the trees, after the Groasis waterboxx is removed, continue to survive. This proves that planting with the Groasis waterboxx and afterwards removing the device is a secure way of planting trees everywhere.

In November 2008 the Groasis waterboxx was rewarded the Dutch Bèta Dragons Science Award 2008. This competition is organized by the Platform Bèta Techniek in cooperation with the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. The jury was very positive about the potential of the Groasis waterboxx as a solution for ecological, climate and poverty issues.
