Second project meeting in Cologne
All VertiKKA partners met for the second time on the 19th and 20th of August. In addition to the presentation of results and networking for future cooperation, a special highlight was the selection of the ‘Veedel’ (city district). The district of Ehrenfeld fulfilled all selection criteria best by far and will serve as a study area in the future. The project partners were able to personally appreciate the suitability of Ehrenfeld for the project during a short guided tour through the ‘Veedel’.
A lot is scheduled to happen in advance of the next project meeting:
- a selection of the green façade module,
- studies on the selection of plants and their suitability for irrigation with grey water and their behaviour during frost,
- first investigations of the grey water treatment by means of different substrates,
- the further development of photovoltaic modules for the specific requirements, and
- further development of the simulator for the calculation of material flows and wind circulation
The meeting was a complete success and promoted mutual understanding - not only in the specialist areas.
