Tynica – Organic Hydroponic Nutrient

Where you can get your own food at your own home

Providing sustainable and affordable organic nutrient from fish waste for hydroponic crops to utilize future urban farming.

Use Case

The use of fish waste as a main ingredient to make organic hydroponic nutrient is an alternative to solve sanitary and environmental problems caused by the lack of adequate disposition for the waste from the fish industry. Besides, it is also a way of providing sustainable resource for hydroponic nutrients, in order to substituting inorganic nutrients. Tynica will provide affordable nutrient to achieve a sufficient and balanced nutrient levels for most hydroponic crops. To conclude, our target is basically everyone, so that they can grow food at their own home by utilizing hydroponic method.

Potential

Inorganic nutrient is used as a fertilizer for most hydroponic crops. Unfortunately, the disposal of hydroponic waste becomes an important issue that can be overlooked. Tynica will overcome the issue by reducing the amount of chemical substance. We will substitute inorganic nutrients for hydroponic to organic nutrients simply because organic nutrients will address waste solution problem and provide an alternative fertilizer for hydroponic simultaneously. An alternative fertilizer is made from fish waste which is produced by fish companies and accounted for 2,912 tons/year (Dominy et al., 2014). Our products will have low startup cost and use local sourced materials, so the materials of our hydroponic nutrients will be sustainable for hydroponic crops.

Business Case

Tynica organic hydroponic nutrient is a sustainable nutrient for hydroponic plant which is good for both the soil (or environment) and the plants. It can be used as an alternative fertilizers to replace the inorganic nutrient. Our hydroponic nutrient can also be used for profit business. The short term goals for our business are to establish a continuous production of our hydroponic nutrient and spread widely to some locals about hydroponic in order to civilize house farming. In the long term goals, we will continue to develop and expand the “hydroponic at home” concept and marketing to another level globally.

Objectives:

  1. Reduce the usage of chemical substance which is harmful for the environment.
  2. Develop organic hydroponic nutrient from fish waste and lamtoro leaves as a sustainable resource.
  3. Can be used as a for profit business by using low startup cost and local sourced material producing an affordable nutrient.

Prototype Making Frenzy

After all the research on what formulation we should use, we finally can make this organic hydroponic nutrient prototype! The star ingredients is of course, the fish waste. We add lamtoro leaves as the additional ingredient. Those ingredients contain macro and micronutrients that are essential for the plants growth. The rest of the process is fermenting the formula using Lactobacillus sp. bacteria, so that the less C/N ratio of the nutrient can be obtained.

Our Mission

Our mission is to acquire “no hunger” by Bringing fresh food to every house , developing vertical and urban farming, utilizing hydroponic to grow food without soil by organic nutrients that everyone can buy and use at their own house farm. The nutrient is also eco-friendly and affordable.

Our Background

Our team consist of 3 members who are majoring in chemistry. We’ve been learning chemical compounds in every aspects of application for 3-4 years. Aside from our science educational background, we also have competition experience in business. Wahyu Putri Pranotoningtyas has plenty experiences in research and has received many awards from institution. Atsar Leswara Nindita is mastering on organic chemistry especially on natural product and its mechanism of reaction. Prisca Putri Elesta is also a chemistry student but she had competed in business competition. So combined altogether we want to introduce scientific invention into the market in which science and business cooperate to the fullest extent. For now we are focusing on substituting inorganic nutrients for hydroponic to organic nutrients simply because organic nutrients are sustainable for both the soil and the plants (eco friendly). We’re also going to offer staple organic nutrient at prices competitive with non organic nutrient, so this will make buying organic nutrient an easy and affordable choice.
