How did Home-grown Foods begin?

We saw Hong Kong as a place with huge potential for reversing the current fast-food trend by advocating the benefits of eating local organic food. In early 2009, we initiated contact with local farms that shared our vision. The vegetables feature in recipes at Posto Pubblico, Cantopop, Linguini Fini and Pizzeria Pubblico.

What are the difficulties faced in farming in Hong Kong?

Farmers are facing high labour costs. They’re also facing high rents for farmlands, land reclamation for property development and weather fluctuations.

What are your tips for people to grow vegetables in a small space at home?

Get basic

Principles of nutrition Microbes

Therefore, in the culture medium should contain all these nutrients in amounts corresponding to the specific needs of the organism. However, the physiology of microorganisms is extremely diverse, and so are as varied their specific nutritional needs. For the cultivation of microbes offered literally thousands of different media, and often in the description of these environments does not specify precisely why they put those or other components. Meanwhile, the composition of the culture medium can and must be based on scientific principles of nutrition. These principles will be discussed in this section.

Because the chemical composition of cells which is

Where to find eco-friendly products?

My friend, a Frenchman who came to Moscow every time provokes the same conversation. "This is a Moroccan oranges? What is the cost? "- He points to the fruit from the supermarket. "Approximately euros per kilo" — I say. "And we have — one and a half euros. In this case, Morocco from us — through the strait. I do not understand it. "

Similarly, we discuss the Dutch roses, giant apples "Granny" and other consumer goods. From time to time I tell him the same thing: "You see, all these apples — non-perishable, they can be stored

Tomsk project on recycling organic waste into biogas solves three long-term objectives

Scientists at the Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological Systems, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS IMCES) engaged in an innovative project on waste into biogas.

"The goal was to supply a small autonomous territory in the Tomsk region near Lake Karasevo Kolpashevsky area rich sapropel deposits — deposits on the bottom of water bodies, consisting of the remains of plants, small fish and plankton, — says Dmitry Fomin, expert of the commercialization of scientific research IMCES SB RAS. — The problem was the remoteness of the area from centralized sources of

North Ossetia and Germany have agreed to cooperate in the field of preparative organic synthesis

National Innovation and Technology Centre of Materials concluded an agreement on cooperation with famous international chemicals company Bayer Crop Science AG (Germany) Preparation of organic synthesis.

This was reported in the Ministry of Education of North Ossetia. According to the head of the institution Tatyana Belyaeva, Center will develop processes for the synthesis of organic compounds, the preparation of which the usual methods is almost impossible.

The special technology, which was developed by local experts to help solve these problems, and that interest group representatives. Their structures were confirmed to be new compounds modern methods of infrared

Hurricanes have a negative impact on water quality

September 30. Water quality in lakes and other bodies of water can be significantly reduced if the global warming will increase the number of hurricanes. This statement was made by scientists from Yale University.

Last summer, the New York agglomeration of Hurricane "Irene" — it was the strongest storm in the region over the past 200 years. When the element had subsided, the team found a record high amount of dissolved organic matter in the Ashokan Reservoir and the Catskill watershed ridge, which are the main source of drinking water for the city, according to "United Press International".

Mari scientists turn garbage into ecological fuel

The problem of waste management is becoming more acute. Unfortunately, in many regions of Russia today, the only form of disposal is burial.

Recycling plants only partially solve the problem — allocating and using recycled materials. The organic constituent of the waste remains unclaimed, becoming a source of increased environmental pressure on the environment. In this regard, the increasing demand of technology for recycling organic waste into fertilizer and non-traditional energy sources. Scientists Mari State Technical University (MarSTU) successfully engaged in the development and improvement of such technologies for 12 years.

Two years ago, the study by the University

At the Institute of Electrophysics and Electric Power set up a plasma incinerator

In Soviet fiction has been described by light control project rubbish — load it into the rocket and send the sun to burn it. Not cheap, but a good idea.

At the Institute of Electrophysics and Electric Power Russian Academy of Sciences under the leadership of Rutberg (about awarding him the prize "Global Energy" journal "Science" wrote in N2) established industrial plasma generator in which to process household waste used low-temperature plasma-chemical process. Thus not only be disposed of waste, but also produces electricity. The project plant for processing of municipal solid waste was submitted for examination to
