Hyundai’s Fuel Cell system uses hydrogen and air to create electrical power that runs the car, which then results in emissions of just heat and water vapor. 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.
