The concentration of population to metropolis area makes economic growth by the integration of capitals and that concentration is the fundamental drive for its own growth. However, overconcentration increases the environmental load resulting in worse circumstance of life. Furthermore the economic gap between metropolis and less-populated areas are expanded largely. In addition, global warming becomes the serious threat to the human being.
In the KOINE Cold Tech research platform, we consider making use of cold heat which is often abandoned in order to solve social and industrial problems. For example, the integration of smart farm and data center could bring total reduction of heat energy and may stimulate various new businesses from this integration. We now make the plan of the proof of concept on this integrated industrial system and also discuss future of distributed eco-cities for the sustainable society.
