I can smell it

The photo isn't showing up right, but it's supposed to show our hybrid progress. We have reached an interesting point in our project and we're really starting to move in the design. The goal is to create a carbon neutral building that will produce more energy than it uses. We hope to be able to sell power to Barcelona. I have found some interesting information about bioremediation and we could possibly help with the water problem a little. We are hoping to take a portion of the seawater and put it through a desalination process. This water would be pumped to the highest level and filtered down the mountain using gravity. It would pass through troughs of oyster mushrooms which would filter it and can be harvested for restaurants on our site. We haven't decided what to do with the purified water yet, but there are countless possibilities.
