Funded by a town government in France, Ville de Boulogne Billancourt that truly believes in the mission that low tech solutions can have a profound effect on both the developed and undeveloped world.

What is the #lowtech criteria?
1- Useful: access to food, water, energy or waste management
2-Something you can make with local materials and local knowledge
3- More economical and accessible than hi tech

Burning question - What does the crew do with their poop? Black soldier flie larvae can process up to 60,000 times their weight of organic waste into valuable compost. Compost feeds plants and ducks (Yes - they had ducks at sea. Apparently they make better pets and are nicer than chickens). Urine is collected and filtered through clay balls transforming it into usable nitrogen liquid to water the plants.

There are multiple simple water filtration methodologies that remove pathogens but not desalination because the salt molecules are too small to separate out. They also experimented with a cricket farm, eating them for protein. This is a widely accepted edible in most other countries.

The team will go back and reassess and refine all the lessons they’ve learned and hopefully get back out on the water.
