Proud to belong to the Groasis family
Accreviri was born with the vocation of making Groasis technology known in Spain, a place where due to environmental conditions, we consider that both Waterboxx and Growboxx are ideal solutions to help plant and reforest ecologically.
As distributors of Groasis in Spain, we are proud to present all the awards that have been granted to Groasis in the past years.
Khalifa International Award for innovation in agriculture
Awarded in 2019 at the 11th Edition held in Dubai in the category of «Pioneering and sophisticated innovations at the service of the agricultural sector».
Grosasis: the most innovative company in the Netherlands.
Thanks in part to the invention of Growboxx, the Netherlands chose Groasis as the most innovative company of 2018.

Development of a "water battery" for trees
Traditional irrigation techniques are inefficient because most of the water is lost through evaporation. For this, Pieter Hoff created the Waterboxx, a device made of polypropylene designed to capture rainwater and condensation, which accumulates in the chamber under the cover and prevents water from evaporating.

A box to plant in the desert
The invention of Pieter Hoff, which is named after Groasis Waterboxx, has a hole in its center where the seed or a small plant is placed.
The lid of the box has a series of diagonal grooves that collect the water and accumulate it inside a chamber, which releases the water to the roots of the plant through a wick at the bottom of the box.
When the plant has managed to develop its roots, penetrating the ground in search of water, the box can be removed and reused to plant other specimens.

The objective of Waterboxx is to be able to plant trees where they normally have no viability due to extreme weather and water difficulties.
These difficulties could really be resolved according to a group of researchers from the University of Valladolid, with the GroasisWaterboxx, developed by a Dutch company, and which replaces natural irrigation. It consists of “a box that traps the water of night condensation and occasional rains and gives it to the plants in minimal quantities, but sufficient to ensure their survival,” explains Zacarías Clérigo.

Because we have felled so many trees, the weather has become more extreme. It is still raining enough to keep the crop, the problem is that the water falls in a very short period of time.
What the waterboxx solves is that you can plant trees, help them overcome the first two or three years when it is very difficult, and once the roots are deep enough, the tree can survive on its own. So you can re-protect areas that seemed to be lost.

Helping gardeners go through a dry period
Among the winners in Popular Science magazine, a unique solution for gardeners or farmers working in dryland areas stands out. This year, the Waterboxx of the Dutch company Groasis was chosen as one of the most innovative products in the “green technology” category.
Scientists believe that deforestation and excessive agriculture are directly related to a decrease in productivity in the arid and semi-arid lands of the world. Groasis states that its product can help alleviate the problems associated with agriculture in these dry areas, by helping plants survive long enough for their roots to reach the hidden water deep in the surface.
