Alghe, fungi, insetti: l’intergrazione nel vertical farming dell’approccio dell’economia circolare

Vertical farming is considered a sustainable solution to food production, but using circular economy thinking it can still be improved. Natural ecosystems rely on networks where the waste, or outputs, of one system are the input products of another. Using this structure, nature has achieved a series of cycles from which there is no real waste, only opportunities for another process to capitalize on and transform one product into something new. Is it possible to integrate this ecosystem thinking into vertical farms to reduce the need of external inputs? The joining of hydroponic food production and aquaculture to form aquaponics is probably the most well known example of an artificial ecosystem. Excitingly, aquaponics is not the only natural and profitable overlap, integrating insect and mushroom production can further improve this system.
