Algeagardens / Algeaculturecenter& -farms

Algeagardens
Algeagardens

The idea consists in the creation of a biodiesel region out of the provided structures of old unused saltgardens. Onshore salines are turned into decentral microalgaefarms. By the grow of algae the air polluted regions near old salt gardens (e.g San Francisco, Cadiz,... )get rid of the CO2 while biomass and O2 is produced. The coastal water is cleared off eutrophication by the establishment of Macroalgaefarms reusing the structures of the old Musselfarms. Thus a farm works as ecological catalyst. The biomass is transported to the algeaculturecenter, where it is processed into biodiesel (lateron hydrogen), researched and shown to the public.
