Re-Source is the result of an intensive research and work on new resources able to unseat fossil fuel uses. In order to serve the environmental cause and to use the sea’s economical potential, we chose to work on the Port, hot spot of interactions’ imbalance between Humanity and the Sea.
The micro-algae, a sustainable natural resource, is the Bio-fuel 3rd generation’ s main component. We proposed a Bio-fuel generating station replicable from port to port. These structures offer an eco-production for bio-fuel, which would be distributed in-situ. To achieve an autonomous and perpetual fabrication, the factory is built as a giant siphon which allows the fluids to flow without prior energy input.
The structure is located on the main dyke and represents an attraction center : each station hosts both academic and leisure program. Re-Source bases include an academic research center and a resort in addition to the fueling station. Re-Source is an alternative to the production of Bio-fuel 3rd generation. It offers an economic hub based on Micro – Algae resource, aware and respectful of environmental issues.
