On the Food & Energy Campus, renewable energies, the operation of aquaculture, aquaponics and ecological horticulture are systematically interconnected. In the aquaculture, the keeping and breeding of fish in closed circulation systems with a focus on animal welfare will be improved. Aquaponics will be implemented, which is a combination of aquaculture and plant cultivation in which the resulting nutrients from fish farming are used as fertilizer for vegetables and herbs. In addition, our greenhouses are home to chicken for the production of organically grown eggs and meat.
Our goal and desire is to unconditionally respect the natural energy, material and life cycles and to use them synergistically. The use of fossil energies such as petroleum should be avoided as far as possible.
For the first time in Germany, six companies that contribute to sustainability with their own company, are working together to achieve this objective and are combining the concepts and technologies developed in-house to a new and large scale.
We would like to tell you which food products are cultivated and produced on the Food & Energy Campus and how the region of Groß-Gerau benefits from the project.
