Fertilecity has a new doctor in the house! Congratulations to Dr. Mireia Ercilla on defending her dissertation "Air, food and soilless substrate quality assessment in rooftop agriculture".
This doctoral thesis aims to fill these gaps by addressing the following research questions:
Question 1: Does atmospheric heavy metal pollution in cities contaminate soilless crops from RA and RTGs?
Question 2: Are the biological air conditions in RTGs adequate to provide safe working environments? And in the case of i-RTGS, can its air be recirculated while ensuring safe environment for building users?
Question 3: Are we using adequate substrates for urban agriculture to mitigate the effects of climate change and increase resilience to drought?
Question 4: What is the consumer's perception of RA and products grown in these systems?
