Hyundai's ix35 Fuel Cell powered an aquaponic farm, filtering car water vapor into a fish tank. The fish waste is then used to grow veg.

For the aquaponic farm installation, Something & Son — a London design practice that focuses on sustainable design — connected the ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle to a fish tank. The water vapor run-off was filtered into the tank, where carp were kept. The waste from the fish was then used to feed vegetables, creating a symbiotic environment.
