Electronic Soil

Recently, researchers from Linköping University (Sweden) created ‘electronic soil’ (eSoil) that can speed up the growth of plants in Hydroponic spaces.

About eSoil

  • Unlike traditional substrates like mineral wool, which are non-biodegradable and manufactured using energy-intensive processes, eSoil is composed of cellulose, a biopolymer, blended with a conductive polymer known as PEDOT – Poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene).
  • This innovative blend of materials allows for the stimulation of root systems in plants through low-power electrical currents.
  • Esoil uses extremely little energy and does not need high voltage to activate the roots, unlike some other similar solutions.
