Nature-based Solutions
Before introducing MAPS, let's first delve into the concept of NbS (Nature-based Solutions). NbS represents a suite of nature-centered strategies aimed at combating climate change while concurrently enhancing biodiversity and improving overall human well-being.

Conventional DAC (Direct Air Capture) techniques entail the direct extraction of carbon from the atmosphere, often demanding substantial energy resources. In ID Water's NbS solution, we seamlessly incorporate mangroves. Mangroves possess an astounding carbon sequestration capacity, ranging from four to six times greater than rainforests. To put it simply, one hectare of mangroves can sequester carbon equivalent to that of six hectares of conventional plants.
In ID Water's innovative system, we've amalgamated four key elements, culminating in what we call MAPS.
Our strategic approach involves the astute placement of solar panels above our shrimp farming facilities to provide the essential energy required for operations.
Concurrently, we harness our in-house developed AIoT technology to meticulously oversee and control the operational processes within our farming facilities, ensuring the utmost product quality and production output. Furthermore, we utilize AIoT-equipped drones for precise irrigation of mangroves using wastewater from our shrimp farming processes.

While traditional methods are viable, our approach optimizes the growth of mangroves by leveraging the ammonia nitrogen present in shrimp farming wastewater, simultaneously reducing fertilization costs.

Our methodology offers superior stability compared to traditional shrimp farming, for three primary reasons: Indoor, Insure, AIoT. At the same time, the cultivation of mangroves requires a long-term and predictable business model, hence the need for a stable supply of nutrients, which traditional outdoor farming methods lack the data to support.

Indoor: We employ indoor farming, minimizing susceptibility to weather and disease.
Insure: Utilizing data generated by AIoT, we can collaborate with financial institutions and insurance companies to mitigate financial risks.
AIoT: Through the integration of AIoT technology, our farming operations become more intelligent, ensuring over two decades of stable production, thereby providing a consistent nutrient supply to mangroves.

AIoT technology facilitates rapid growth, reducing training time and costs to just two months, as opposed to the two years or more traditionally required by farmers to achieve comparable results.

MAPS targets areas where mangroves do not naturally grow due to a lack of nutrients and aims to plant mangroves there to enhance local biodiversity and create additional external value.
How do we do it?
Auto-feeding System
Indoor high-density white shrimp farming involves precise control of feeding density to avoid water quality deterioration and effectively reduce aquaculture costs. IDW has developed a
cantilever volumetric feeding machine that, combined with IoT and algorithms, which is 3 times better than traditional feeding machines.
Image Recognition System
By combining AI image recognition technology, it can monitor shrimp growth, size,
digestive tract conditions, and leftover feed. The system can achieve up to 20
observations per day without the need for additional manpower costs.
Water Monitoring System
It can monitor 24 hours a day, replacing the errors caused by manual testing. PVC pipes are used to solve data distortion issues caused by biofilm and corrosion. We also possess unique
technology for detecting important aquaculture data such as ammonia nitrogen and nitrite, along with a system to monitor nutrient levels and carbon sequestration in mangroves.
Expert System
By collecting data on images, water quality, water levels, feeding, and wastewater,
we have developed an expert system based on this data. It can predict and estimate
production yields, optimal harvest times, and potential risks.
