(mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Design for sustainability Programme Master of Science Integrated Product Design Date 2015-12-03 Abstract Demographics and the increase in welfare will double the nutritional demands in the coming decades. At the same time, the amount of arable land and other resources are becoming scarce. The question of how to feed the future world population is becoming more urgent. Hydroponics, a method of growing plants without soil, could be one of the answers in avoiding a food crisis. Hydroponics allows to grow more food in a smaller space and requires much less water and nutrients. Hydroponics have largely been implemented by commercial growers in the past years. The report shows the design process of the development of a product that allows DIY growers to implement hydroponics on a small scale at home.
