PVC Reuse: the Seed of Urban Agriculture

Urbanisation has highlighted a forthcoming, major challenge: how can we sustainably provide food to growing cities? We find an answer in urban agriculture.

In Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, potatoes, herbs and tomatoes grow in large PVC pipes. The scene is a VinylPlus®-supported project, that has collected partners amongst academics, architects, local authorities and industry, and that aims to establish sustainable food production with reused PVC building waste which is at the root of urban agriculture.
