Floating Permaculture: A sustainable system for a better living

Floating Permaculture

Dietmar Koering has come with the Floating Permaculture which will beautifully fuse renewable energy, natural ways of cleaning grey water, organic food production, rainwater capture and re-circulating hydroponics. The structure will be constructed in the North Sea and vows to unfurl an all new structure that will keep the environment clean and green.

Dietmar found out that humans act greedily and exploit natural resources for their own avaricious motives. They act as deadly parasites and keep deleting precious resources from the environment. The quantities are so large that at times even the environment is not able to replenish the resources snatched away from it. This leads to depletion and in turn a reason for mankind to suffer. This also disturbs the balance of nature, which has a lot of adverse outcomes. While researching, the designer found out that mankind made a lot of serious blunders while developing its permanent culture. Keeping these grave issues in mind, he has come up with an efficient system that will fulfill the basic needs of humans. It will help curb exploitation for a better living.

Growing urban spaces have killed forest lands which is posing serious threats. Floating Permaculture will give an all new meaning to expanding modern spaces and make them more sustainable. The Utopian ideas of metabolism from 1960s have been beautifully coupled with energy and food production in a way that it blends with present times. Each permaculture will be a combination of agriculture and sustainable energy. This will be placed in closed feedback loops. The input has been ingeniously divided into waste and natural feeders. Natural feeders, as the name suggest, make good use of sun and wind energy. On the other hand, waste feeders make good use of biomass and sewage resources produced by mega structures.

Harnessing energy from natural sources, like sun and wind, can produce considerable amounts of energy. But, the real trouble is to store this kind of energy which may pose problems. A great way is to make good use of electrolysis by coupling it with hydrogen-fuel cell. Electrolysis can convert electricity generated by natural sources into hydrogen, which can be later swapped into electricity by the fuel cells. A fermenter is used to produce auxiliary energy from sun, wind, bio-gas and wave turbines. A second reactor is connected to the circular flow through an algae bio-reactor. The production is pepped up to 24 hours by optimizing LEDs which function using fuel cells. The algae press cake derived at the end can be used as an animal feed as it is high in protein and will prove to be a healthy option in their diet.

The basic idea behind the whole project is transform everything and not waste. In this case, nothing is lost or wasted but everything is concerted from one form to the other. This is a great way to minimize the effects of climatic change. Floating Permaculture is an energy efficient structure which will save precious resources and in turn the environment as well.
