Feasibility study

What’s on the table is what’s eaten (Part 3: Future)

Cur­rent­ly, the food val­ue chain accounts for about one third of pri­ma­ry ener­gy demand glob­al­ly. Pro­duc­tion, wash­ing, pro­cess­ing, pack­ag­ing, to name just a few ele­ments, are linked via trans­port and sup­port­ed by large-vol­ume stor­age and cold stor­age facil­i­ties with all its fos­sil fuel consumptions.

We are still part of nature. But with that the dis­cus­sion about nature is closed once and for all. Here it’s about cul­tur­al achieve­ments. About 11,500 years ago, we assumed - step by step - that it might be wis­er to grow food our­selves. From the ini­tial 50.000 m² that a per­son need­ed to feed him­self suf­fi­cient­ly before the Neolith­ic, we now need 2.300 m² per caput.

Building Refurbishment for food production

Upcom­ing EU Tax­on­o­my, ESG-cri­te­ria and all relat­ed changes to CO2-emis­sions lead to rethink poten­tials of low-ener­gy-stan­dards of exist­ing build­ings. Expand­ing the life­cy­cle of build­ings by acti­vat­ing it for food pro­duc­tion leads to effec­tive pro­duc­tive and resilient cities.
