CO2 emissions can be cut by 75 % by
switching from gas burners to UV Weed Control.
|Fuel consumption (Gas or diesel) is lowered up to a factor four - very high energy saving.|
|Fast payback time.|
|Cost of man-hours are cut to half or one third, as the working speed is much faster than gas burners.|
A reduction of CO2 in form of greenhouse
gas is important. First step could be to cut CO2 emission up to 75 % using
Next step can follow later, using fuel cells. The UV equipment runs even more efficient on fuel cells.
Hydrogen, generated by e.g. wind power, could then be the source of energy for the UV lamps - a "carbon-free" solution.
Heat from gas burners is les effective down in gaps between stones. UV light is more efficient in the gaps and green alga on stones are removed in the same process. It gives a look of higher quality.
equipment "model 1", offered to the first communities within service distance of

– it can be a tool carrier, a lorry or a tractor.
Energy is supplied by an electrical generator attached to the PTO of the vehicle or by a standard diesel-generator on a trailer behind the vehicle.
|High speed and low energy consumption
reduces the variable costs.|
few percentage of UV light are reflected, when hitting a thin green leaf.
Penetrates only the thin top surface - converts to heat
|UV-B Light||Penetrates most of the thin leaf - converts to heat inside
and DNA damage inside cells.
|UV-A Light||Penetrates a thin leaf - a major part converts to heat inside leaf|
The small amount of water in a thin leaf is heated up very
efficient from inside by a beam of UV Light.
It is why UV Weed Control equipment can be used at high speed
very high speed if the UV beam is generated by equipment able to supply very high power.
At very high power, it takes only a flash of UV light to increase the temperature inside a thin leaf to the boiling point.
