“Greening roofs in Tunisia”

El Fab Space   -  Tunisia

How to reduce CO2 emissions and boost the circular economy? How about a bio-digestor paired with generators, which transforms organic waste into biogas, which produces heat and electricity, and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer to grow plants on city roofs! The more plants on roofs, the more electricity for central heating and fresh produce to eat at home - that’s the threefold effect of the “green roofs” project!
