Designed to minimise energy consumption, the approach will allow cities to capture stormwater and reuse waste water. By capturing the water downstream of the city it focuses people’s mind on the state of the water being sent down the drain and captures the extra rain now falling on our cities. Dobozy has interest from Dubai and Japan and is working with German and Chinese companies to develop a second stage prototype. As well as capturing water, Dobozy thinks that the platform cant be used to and potentially desalinate sea water, generate energy and farm algae.
