Sustainable food production in cities using aquaponics and vertical farming
In order to guarantee sustainable food safety and security for all, we need alternative food production methods. This is where Riverfood and aquaponics come in the picture. We make aquaponics systems in combination with vertical farming: a closed loop system where plants are grown with the help of fish and bacteria – creating a sustainable food production without waste and with limited food miles. All that is needed is feeding the fish – they produce waste which is eaten by the bacteria, and the waste that the bacteria produce is food for the plants. The plants are cleaning the water for the fish. Both the plants and the fish are produced pesticide- and antibiotics free for human consumption.
