Non-Chemical Weed Control

Heatweed

Harnesses the power of 99°celcius, hot water.

We use Heatweed™ technology to effectively and gently manage weeds.

Developed by innovative Norwegian-based company with more than 35 years’ in the green and agriculture sector, Heatweed™ is the most effective, non-chemical weed control method available, using non-chemical, superheated natural water, heated at 99° Celsius, to manage and eliminate invasive species.

Acacia is proud to use the Heatweed™ Non-Chemical equipment to provide weed control services across Victoria. Please note, we do not sell the equipment.

How Heatweed™ technology works:

At 99° Celsius, superheated water obliterates a plant’s cell structure, promoting a systemic effect of the roots. After each treatment, the plants grow weaker, until eradicated permanently. An average of three or four treatments a year will suffice.

Why Hot water?

Using hot water to rid weeds is not a new invention. The first patent was taken out in the 1880s, but the method could not be used on a large scale owing to the inadequacies of the technology. Not anymore!

Heatweed™ uses 100% natural water - the most effective conduit of heat - to distort a plant’s cell structure. Compared to other thermal methods such as steam where the potential for heat transfer is low, hot water offers better control, accuracy and a lower water consumption. Acacia is only one of two company’s in Australia to offer this award-wining service, to safely and gently manage weeds.

Can Recycle Water

Meaning low water consumption

Disinfect surfaces from viruses, bacteria and fungi using 100% natural hot water technology.

How it works:

New evidence supports every virus must be exposed to 99°C at a minimum of 0.5 seconds to be dead, including COVID-19.

Heatweed’s™ award-winning, patented technology exposes viruses and bacteria to natural water, super-heated to 99°C, completely sanitising high-risk surfaces such as trolleys, bus stops, park benches, bicycle parking, play equipment and more.

And unlike the steam application which has a much lower energy transfer, requires temperatures of 160°C and needs special application tools to keep the steam in place for sufficient time, Heatweed™ is fast, effective, safe and guaranteed to sanitise against COVID-19.
