Floating Blue 21 ecosystem alternative comprises of solutions to multiple interconnected problems of delta cities around the world.
It is a floating development that can be ‘plugged in’ to existing cities and help them recycling waste nutrients and CO2 that often end up in the environment, polluting it.
The global potential of the BlueRevolution was evaluated, estimating the contribution of floating productive developments in solving global land scarcity. The comparison between the available land and the amount of space that human population will require to sustain their lifestyle in the near future showed that we will experience land shortage equivalent to the size of North America, mainly due to increasing food and biofuel demands. If part of the food and biofuel production is moved to water, pressure on land-based ecosystems could be eased. The research on the BlueRevolution is currently ongoing, with the objective of soon being able to test and demonstrate ideas and concepts in pilots and future projects.
