Clear water and food supply are the base of a chain of issues that face the whole world. Hunger, malnutrition and high rate of death are all consequences of the main challenge, as 1.2 billion person suffer from hunger all over the world. The main challenge of the project is improving irrigation process by providing clear water suitable for irrigation, modifying both the irrigation system and the plants to increase the production. Purifying Sewage water by Down flow Anaerobic Peat moss Blanket (DAPB), using a modified drip irrigation system and inserting “Gibberellin” hormone for increasing the rate of the plant growth are believed to be useful solutions to achieve the main challenge. The project produces more amount of crops with higher efficiency and a little cost, so it meets the design requirements of any project (Production, efficiency and cost). The prototype of the project represents the water treatment process (Anaerobic Treatment) and tests the percentage of the purification of water (The efficiency). The results showed that the treated water TDS was less than 1000 mg/l (ppm) when it was measured by TDS Meter, so it is suitable for irrigation. In conclusion, test results showed that this project is the perfect solution to the challenge addressed.

Every developed country depends on the industry as the main factor of its economy. Lack of exports, depression in both the general economy and the value of the currency are consequences of neglecting the industry. All countries work on increasing the efficiency of their industries by whether working on the input, the output, the cost or the time of the process. Plastic industry is considered one of the most important industries because plastic is an important factor in the making of many useful products such as sheets, tubes, rods, slabs, building blocks and domestic products. Making bio-plastic from banana peels instead of the traditional petroleum-based plastic is believed to be a successful solution to increase the efficiency of plastic industry. The solution produces the same amount of plastic with higher efficiency and durability and with a little cost in less time than normal plastic, so it meets the design requirements of any successful solution which are production, efficiency, and cost. The prototype of this project represents the process of manufacturing bio-plastic from banana peels and tests the durability and the efficiency of the plastic produced. The results showed that the plastic produced could bear the weight one and a half time more than petroleum-based plastic so it is suitable for being used in the making of traditional plastic products. In conclusion, test results showed that this project is the perfect solution to develop the plastic industry process.
