[L.E.N.T] - HOW REGENERATIVE E-GAS COULD SOLVE OUR FOSSIL ENERGY PROBLEM
KEYWORDS: FUTURE TRANSPORTATION; PARAMETRIC DESIGN;
︎ ︎ ︎
The focus of this project was to visualize how so-called e-gas, a gas that is generated using electrical energy, could substitute fossil energy in existing industries without even having to build a completely new infrastructure, since chemically (methane) it is very similar.
Various companies,like Nordic Blue Crude in Norway, Climeworks in Switzerland, but also Audi are working on such a future scenario.
This concept was combined with Elon Musks SpacX vision, which imagines a very similar technology to produce gas on Mars.
In the next 30 years, humanity will face difficult challenges. World-changing challenges that we have never faced before in the fields of energy, climate change, food supply, gene modification, automation, future of the internet, economic disparity and city planning.
However, we are survivors and we are explorers. We also want to expand our horizon by discovering and inhabiting other planets.
LENT is a project for 2050s Valencia, where humanity uses rockets to travel between planets and continents. It is a future transportation hub, but also a public park, carbon dioxide capture center, and an energy plant.
We want to leave the earth, but also leave no trace.
Within the last decade, there has been a significant increase in space investors. The investor number has grown from 20 to 180, with an investment magnitude reaching up to 3,000 million USD.
Many start-up companies are founded and adopted the re-useable rocket technology to reduce cost per flight and make commercial rocket transportation feasible. Two of the leading companies, Blue Origin and Space X are planning to start their intercontinental travel within the next decade.
Our proposal takes place in 2050, where all these developments are speculated to a point where rocket travel has become a part of daily life.
