...the IBTS is an industrial scale desalination power plant. It uses 0.45 kilowatt hours for the generation of one cubic metre = 1000 litres of distilled water. This is ten times more energy-efficient than state-of-the-art desalination and 1000 times more energy efficient than state-of-the-art atmospheric water generation.
The required energy is proprietary and generated on site from regenerative energy sources. Investment cost is 1/4 of comparable desalination power plants.
A daily freshwater generation of 500.000 cubic metres of freshwater is reached with an IBTS the size of 10 square kilometres.
1 setting up of an open-air aquaculture based on a mangrove-ecosystem (mariculture), 80 metric tons of seafood per hectare and year according to simulation of food-web inteactions done by TS PrototypeCreation
2 erection of tent-like structure - the IBTS Greenhouse, three year life-cycle, 10 hectares unit size
3 charging up of the fresh-water cycle, for water export in the IBTS, building of "Integrated Biotectural system" for food-production and residency (preferable climate inside the controlled environment Greenhouses)
4 building of two more IBTS units with slightly different internal climates and food-production, begin of camel farming in the area between units - muscle powered water transport inland
5 expansion to clusters - each cluster has 7 IBTS units of 10 ha - two clusters match capacity of industrial desalination plant with 500m³ of water per day - saltwater canals between clusters used for (multi-trophic) mariculture, too
6 evolvement of clusters inland. All units are linked like a chain and conduct atmospheric freshwater and saltwater inland - saltwater farming, afforestation, and animal husbandry around clusters - all ecosystem based, not only according to agro-ecology principles
7 open air agriculture and forestry based on salt-water - called "terra-former" units
8 natural re-vegetation through the increase of rainfall on the entire area
9 growth to the west and east
