Vereos / floating greenhouse


Vereos is a floating greenhouse for megacities in coastal area. The nutrition of megacities is a big problem of globalization. The agricultural areas are vanishing because of the spreading of cities. So the distance of transportation of vegetables become longer and longer. Vereos produces vegetables directly in front of the cities‘waterfront. And the production is state of the art like hydroponic-technique. Another advantage is that vegetables grow without using insecticides because it’s close to the water. Moreover vegetables are preserved from harmful environmental influences. Vereos could be installed in many megacities close to the coast.
