New carbon neutral high rises being built in Australian cities

New carbon neutral high rises are being built in Australian cities.

These green buildings harness renewable energy sources and utilise the food waste of city workers.

Millions of black soldier fly larvae are being used to consume the food organics which have come from the towers where bio solar panels have been built.

The project aims to better manage the 60 tonnes of food waste generated from the precinct every month.

As a result of the maggots eating the organic waste, two products have emerged for consumers – one to feed to animals, and another for soil.
