Fuel Tower

Design for towers that will grow large amounts of switchgrass and sugarcane using municipal solid waste.  Meant as an interphase for growing plants next to sewerage or solid waste plants, the plants are grown using aeroponic and hydroponic technology with the purpose of being harvested to create bio fuels (not for human consumption) Through this method, waste can be converted into useful nutrients for plants which are in turned used to produce fuel, architectural design enables the process as the tower becomes a vertical factory for converting waste into plants.
