#11 Benefits of the GyroCup™

#1 REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

​GyroPlant supports multiple sustainability goals beyond carbon savings, with the GyroCup™ offering various environmental benefits.

 

More information is available on our website's sustainability page.

#2 COST EFFICIENT

​No need to worry about volatile substrate supply chains, shipping costs, storage, material or waste costs. 

Purchasing and replacing single-use substrates present ongoing expenses for indoor farmers, with costs continually rising.

 

Reduce your costs by eliminating single-use substrates.

 

Reusable options offer more cost-effective solutions.​

No substrate waste costs.

 

The GyroCup = a cheaper reusable superstructure.

#3 EASY TO CLEAN

Silicone rubber is easily washable by hand or in a washer​.

Single-use substrates contribute to contamination by bringing in diseases and creating environments for mould and algae to thrive in. 

 

However, reusable products are designed for easy cleaning, reducing water and chemicals.

The GyroCup™ can withstand high temperatures (up 150 degrees) without degrading.

#4 COMPATIBLE WITH ALL HYDROPONIC TECHNOLOGY 

  • Deep Water Culture (DWC)

  • Flood and drain 

  • Nutrient Film Technique (NFT)

  • Aeroponics

  • Aquaponics

#8 OPTIMISES PLANT AND ROOT DEVELOPMENT

​Compared to single-use substrates, the GyroCup achieves better root development and growth for many crops.

Nutrient Management:

  • Achieving the right nutrient balance in substrates can be complex. Reusables simplify nutrient management, potentially enhancing plant growth.

 Water Management:

  • Substrates require precise water management, with deviations leading to root diseases or nutrient imbalances. Reusable superstructures improve water use efficiency and reduce nutrient waste.​

#9 UNIQUE MATERIAL

The GyroCup™ is made from food grade silicone rubber, unlike many accessories in vertical farming systems which are made from plastic.

 

It's not only food safe, but will reduce plastic use and waste in indoor farming. 

No more hard to clean plastic net pots which degrade over time and have to be replaced.​​
 

Our silicone rubber formula is :

  • Non reactive to oxidising agents

  • Anti-bacterial

  • UV resistant

  • Wear resistant 

  • Stable in -50°C to +200°C

#10 AUTOMATION 

No matter which technique you use with the GyroCup™, we have the machinery and network to help automate seedling, handling and cleaning. 

We are currently designing a seed tape automation machine to help our larger partners and customer for varying levels of automation. Please let us know if you would like to become a trial partner.

#11 NO SUPPLY CHAIN COMPLEXITIES

Current farms heavily depend on incoming substrates, posing challenges in remote areas.

 

Reusable products provide operational security.​

No more worrying about volatile substrate supply chains, material handling, excessive cleaning.
