Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell Aquaponics Installation in UK

21 Oct 2013


Hyundai is about to unveil a world-first: a unique piece of design theatre that aims to educate people about the real-life benefits of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Due to be revealed at the Design Museum in London on Monday 21st October, the unique aquaponics installation will be a one-off 'Fuel Cell Farm' powered by Hyundai’s ground-breaking technology.

Aquaponics is a sustainable farming solution; a combination of hydroponics (growing plants in water) and aquaculture (raising fish in tanks). Taking the water vapour emitted by the ix35 Fuel Cell, the Fuel Cell Farm condenses it into water which then filters into the fish tank - the aquaponics technology harnesses the minerals from the fish waste to grow vegetables on the farm.

Hyundai has collaborated with London-based sustainability company, Something & Son, to create the Fuel Cell Farm and it will be unveiled by Deputy Mayor of London, Kit Malthouse on October 21st.
