The Future

March 30, 2017

The idea is to finish this project this year, which means we have to hand in some results! In the upcoming months, we will be processing the results, doing experiments with the wood vinegar obtained in Thailand and preparing a final guide for our design. Next to these official deliverables, we are also working on an after movie for the Honors Academy….

The idea

During his trip to Thailand, Max visited the self-sustaining biological farm of Non and Parn. They showed him their installation to create eco-friendly pesticide out of wood, also known as wood vinegar. Their installation worked, but looked like it definitely could be improved.
