How many litres of water would you need to produce 1kg of chocolate? The answer is 17 196 litres of water.
And do you know, zeoponics, a type of agriculture once practised by NASA in space, might hold the answer to the future of farming?
In part I of this episode, our guest Dr Sam Morris shares more interesting nuggets of info, and breaks down how zeolites take on challenges from indoor farming and urban agriculture from a different perspective through science.
A Research Fellow from the Nanyang Technological University, Dr Morris speaks with Amit Midha, President of Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ) and Global Digital Cities, and Danny Elmarji, APJ Vice President of Presales, Dell Technologies, on how we are only scratching the surface with microbiomes and the potential it has in promoting a circular agriculture.
