Skyfey

For the city of the future.
Skyfey.

Our megacities are growing rapidly, and their residents are in need of new urban and supply-planning concepts. One question defines our future: how can we achieve an environmentally friendly, resource-efficient supply of water, energy and food?

Visioverdis answers this question with its Skyfey concept: the closed, modular system creates a cycle in large buildings. The concept is based on the idea of indoor plant production and utilisation of organic waste. Its goal is self-sufficiency in terms of food, energy, water and clean air.

Skyfey:
all advantages at a glance

Closed plant production

Visioverdis is working on a closed plant production unit that can produce food for residents or restaurants.

Self-sufficient heat and energy supply

Gasification of the building’s internal sewage sludge supplies the building and the plant production system with heat and energy. Ashes from the sludge fertilise the plants.

Modular cycle

The cycle is composed of modules which are switched in series and synchronised. They can be integrated into new buildings as well as existing structures (as upgrades).

Improved air quality

Beyond the provision of food, the plant production system also serves the purpose of capturing carbon dioxide and transforming it into oxygen, improving the climate inside the building.

Environmentally friendly water supply

Treated water is reused; grey water is channelled to the plant production system. Collected rainwater can cover any remaining water requirements in the residential units.

Pioneering solution

The resource-efficient concept of Skyfey is ideal for residential high-rise buildings and hotels.

Skyfey

The modular structure of Skyfey combines different systems to facilitate self-sufficiency of buildings in terms of food, energy, water and clean air.

Cultivating crop plants directly inside a building is not a new idea. What is new about Skyfey is that it generates some of the energy required by those plants self-sufficiently.
