FUTURE CITY (LTDW) TO EXHIBIT THE DAIWA HOUSE GROUP¹S EDV-01 DISASTER EMERGENCY MOBILE SUPPORT UNIT

The EDV-01 is the first of its kind. A stainless-steel container about 6 meters long, 2 meters wide and 2 meters high, is equipped with cutting-edge systems to provide water and electricity. A rooftop solar system and fuel cell generates power that is stored in lithium-ion batteries (developed by Elly Power Co), whereas another system collects up to 20 liters of potable water a day from the air, which enough for two adults to live on for about month. The container¹s main attraction is that it does not require any construction. With the flip of a switch, a hydraulic pump raises the walls in four and a half minutes to form a second floor. The first floor contains a kitchen that utilizes induction heating for cooking, a shower and a bio-toilet. The second floor has fold-away beds and an office space with a separate desk. Four hydraulic ³feet² automatically stabilize the containers on rough terrain. The unit is ecologically sound as the container itself does not generate any waste during the installation or dismantling process. Research and development for the EDV-01 took two and a half years. The developers were particularly concerned about design details. For example, the exterior can be used as a billboard and the punched-metal exterior walls are visible from great distances due to the inclusion of light-emitting diodes.

Is Origin Oil currently developing "growth" technologies? I saw in one of your recent articles that multiple open growth ponds were being used to input into your harvest process, but wonder where I can get more info on closed, LED sourced growth systems for application in Pacific Northwest locations.
Has MBD written any papers regarding their algae development plant?
