URBAN FOOD FROM RESIDUAL HEAT

The Swedish cities of Malmö, Lund, Oskarshamn and Bjuv in collaboration with E.ON, ICA Fastigheter, Veolia and more, are looking for creative partners with innovative solutions to be involved in a new venture. This new venture will use wasted heat energy emitted from industrial sources in the production of food or other biological products within the urban environment. Residual heat, often emitted as clean warm water, represents a waste of both energy and resources that is ultimately detrimental to the local and global environment.
These four municipalities plan to capture this residual heat and use it to produce fish, vegetables and other biological goods in production units located in their respective urban areas. They aim to incorporate the concepts of sustainability, the circular economy and zero waste into a new local service, one which will have positive socioeconomic benefits for the cities, such as employment, education and urban gentrification.
This summer, Climate-Kic along with a number of major partners, organised an open innovation competition to find suitable solutions. Greengineering specialise in reducing energy use and CO2 emissions by harvesting waste thermal energy and were successful in the initial competition phase. We have been invited to pitch the concept in Malmö in October in the next phase. The technical challenge for us is storing thermal energy efficiently on a roof structure which was not designed for urban farming. This is an exciting opportunity as it will allow us to explore further market potential of one of our recent patent applications. If successful the concept could potentially be scaled down to provide compact hot water storage for domestic properties.
