ROOF WATER-FARM shows ways to innovative urban water management and urban food production. The potentials and risks of a cross-sectoral infrastructure change necessary for this purpose are researched and communicated.
In the research network, possibilities of building-integrated water treatment for irrigation and fertilization of rooftop greenhouses and for the use of industrial water are being developed. Technologies for water treatment and cultivation of plants and fish are being tested in a demonstration plant and test track in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Research promotes a hygienic safe use of rain , gray and black water as a management strategy for urban water management and the potential of urban food production.
On the basis of initial research results, the spatial-spatial transferability of the ROOF WATER-FARM concepts is examined. Structural and procedural variants of plant and fish production in greenhouses are projected and analyzed at building and city level.
In the course of the project, communication and training media for building-integrated water treatment and urban food production are created.
