Indigenous Innovation Zones (iiZ)
connecting nations, tribes and clans together
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.
Use the Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) platform to identify Australian locations for over 500 Indigenous Nations/Tribes/Clans.
Select the nation/tribe/clan from the menu below and an iiZ pin will display the location on the map.
Indigenously owned Land is segregated into Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) and utilised to construct and operate multiple industries and processes (Zones) for the betterment of the indigenous population.
Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) provide surrounding communities with vital employment opportunities and natural, environmental services.
The selected indigenous land will showcase multiple new technological innovation and sustainable environmental methods and processes.
All activities on the land are income generating on a positive cash flow basis.
The Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) provide beneficial community services that deal with environmental waste management, ecological protection, food generation and localised energy generation.
The Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) can provide a valuable resource in considering many local and community issues.
Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) provide inclusive community participation with sustainable economic outcomes.
Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) provide positive innovation and technology transfer to local communities independent of geolocations.
Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) protect land, people and the independent sustainable future of generations to come.
The Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) platform provides cohesiveness, collaboration and common online support services to over 500 Australian Indigenous Nations/Tribes/Clans.
In order to provide synergistic enterprises the vast available indigenous land (sometimes up to many thousands of hectares) is subdivided into four zones each with its own process or technological innovation.
Indigenous Innovation Zones™ (iiZ) promote the values and combination of environmental protection with cultural customs. Each iiZ component works hand in hand to achieve a sustainable ecological outcome, so desperately needed in our communities, while harnessing natural byproducts for economic potential.
ADD a DOT™ (AAD) is a high profile global Helio Planet initiative to eradicate harmful waste from our planet.
Each dot we add on the map represents a new Helio Reactor Unit (HRU) installation.
AAD is an infographic viewer (data visualisation process) which forms part of the Helio Planet website were individuals, communities, waste owners, academics, politicians or anyone else can actually view real-time data on each HRU's daily progress.
Each Indigenous Innovation Zone™ is formed within a ‘Public, Private Partnership’ (PPP) structure.
The partnership is formed between indigenous landowners, communities, industrialists, technologists and funders as required. Our aim is to create a 'SUSTAINABLE BALANCE' between social, environmental and economic factors.
Each entity has responsibilities as they share resources in this sustainable, unique eco-system.
'PPP's are vital to the development of infrastructure in Australia as they allow communities and the private sector to work together and share resources on key projects.
The HELIONIX Ecosystem consists of:
1. WASTE PROCESSING - the HELIO PLANET Helio Reactor Units (HRU) for Waste-To-Energy
2. ENERGY GENERATION - the NEOGENI local energy generation system
3. FOOD PRODUCTION - The HELIOPONIX food growing systems
4. BLOCKCHAIN PLATFORM - the KOSMEUM multi blockchain technology platform
Zone 1 - Waste-To-Energy
The 1st ZONE utilises a patented technology to cost effectively convert MSW, agricultural waste and industrial waste into environmentally safe by-products.
Local Government Agencies (LGA) are responsible for the collection and disposal of household waste and recyclables as Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Current environmentally accepted disposal of MSW is via landfill sites, incinerators and a growing number of transfer stations. All methods have problems which the LGAs, as waste owners, are facing every day. The ever-growing waste volume, lack of available landfills, soil contamination, global warming and other environmental issues are just a few of the major concerns and risks.
The iiZ – Waste-To-Energy Zone is the basis of a central transportable processing plant for all surrounding LGAs to collect and deliver their MSW. The local community benefits from the safe and environmentally effective waste disposal, water reclamation, fertiliser production and energy generation that is derived from the transportable 'Helio Reactor Unit' (HRU).
The Indigenous landowner, as a party to the derived income stream, benefits from a sustained and ecological process.
Zone 2 - Energy Generation
The 2nd ZONE relates to the production of clean renewable energy via solar farming. Currently ‘Large-Scale Solar’ represents 0.4% of the total Australian clean energy generation and only 0.05% of the total Australian energy generation. (Ref: Clean Energy Australia report 2014).
The iiZ solution creates a new cutting-edge ‘Large-Scale Solar Array’ to capture solar energy and distribute to local off-grid consumers.
These localised communal based solar farms provide stored energy to remote areas that are currently not serviced by the national grid-based energy distribution network. In time the iiZ energy generation facility will reduce the current massive cost of transporting diesel fuel to remote parts of Australia and play a greater part in powering off-grid communities. The economic model for the iiZ Solar Farm is based on a decentralised energy harvesting, storage and distribution arrangement with no reliance on connectivity to the national electricity grid.
Energy Storage Units (ESU) are the fundamental and efficient basis for the distribution of the stored energy to local industry, commerce, homes and transportation users.
Zone 3 - Food Production
The 3rd ZONE relates to food production via hydroponics and or aquaculture dependent on the proximity of the indigenous land to waterways or the sea.
Hydroponics is a sustainable economic solution that provides all-year-round horticultural and agricultural products in all environments and climates. The results are a significantly high yield at reduced time frames and with consistent quality. A growing global population and the demands for sustainable food supply is the basis for the transportable hydroponic units that do not rely on pristine soils, non-renewable energy, high amounts of water and chemicals. The iiZ solution utilises high yield hydroponic equipment within transportable 40 foot shipping containers that are arranged side-by-side and powered from the close proximity of 'Helio Reactor Units'. The food generation process needs less water, uses no insecticides or herbicides and requires minimal interaction. Internal adjustable propagation shelving, crop-specific wavelength adjustable LED units, temperature probes, cameras and temperature controllers ensure controllable and predictable high yield food production. Once the fruit/vegetables are harvested from the hydroponic units the residual waste is feed into the nearby 'Helio Reactor Units' for further processing.
Local fresh food production for local community consumption means that no additional transportation is required to deliver the food to the consuming market.
Zone 4 - Agriculture
The 4th ZONE relates to the cultivation, harvesting and production of clean renewable energy via industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L) farming.
“Industrial hemp is one of the oldest crops known to man. It has been cultivated since ancient times for its bast (phloem) fibre in the stem and multi-purpose oil in the seeds (achenes). The low Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration in the industrial hemp makes it a desirable plant for many applications. Interest in industrial hemp has gained momentum worldwide, suggesting that demand for natural fibres will continue to increase. Market segmentation for ethically produced goods and growing demand for biodegradable and natural products has led to a wide range of new industrial hemp products being developed. Interest has increased because of climate change issues and the desire to become more environmentally friendly”. (Ref: “NSW Department of Primary Industries”) Over 30 countries produce industrial hemp, including Spain, Austria, Canada, China, India, Great Britain, France and Russia.
The iiZ solution re-creates well known and tested methods of production and extraction of valuable, natural products.
