The ‘Veat’ Maker

The Veat Maker is a tabletop device which creates meat substitutes out of vegetables in your kitchen. When placing a selection of vegetables into the device they are chopped, mixed, blended and formed into attractive meat substitutes.

CCCC - Composter

Food waste is entered into this composter, it machinates it and adds bacteria to speed up the rates of decomposition turning it into ideal fertiliser which can be used for growing crops.

Methane Farm

The farm is a contained urban farm, powered by the methane produced by cows. The slurry from the cows is used as fertilizer for plants in the adjacent vertical farm. This means that dairy products and fresh vegetables can be produced in our city centres.
