Today's megatrends are clear and leave no doubt that there is an urgent need for action. We need alternatives to today's technologies in the fields of energy, food and environmental protection.

The world's population is growing incessantly and current food sources will soon be insufficient to feed us all. Increasing soil erosion reduces the amount of arable land for food production and oceans are persistently overfished.
Humankind desperately needs ecologically sustainable, reproducible food sources.

Population growth per day:   + 200.000  people
Arable land lost per day: -  20.000  hectares
Daily fish catch: 5.000.000  tonnes

freshwater availability is shrinking as need rises
outputs of minerals are shrinking – e.g. phosphorous
