On Tuesday, Aarhus University hosted the EU-funded Climate-KIC Nordic’s Ideation Day II where so-called seed funding was awarded to projects that contribute to climate solutions. The 20 project proposals included energy renovation of Trondheim’s cathedral to sustainable mobility solutions.
PVC Information Council Denmark together with Aarhus University submitted a project proposal that help solve several issues related to climate. In the future food should be produced locally with the least climate footprint as possible. PVC building waste such as pipes and gutters, which originally is build for water contact, is suitable for building urban agriculture systems. Fertilizer should come from food waste and water from the increasing precitipation due to climate change. In this way several systems are integrated, hereby establishing climate neutral food production.
The seed funding will be spent on a workshop for the project partners, with the objective to write a more detailed application.
The PVC part is the continuation of a project funded by VinylPlus, the European PVC industry’s sustainable development programme.
