The Sahara Forest Project
The Sahara Forest
Project combines already existing and proven environmental technologies,
including saltwater-cooled greenhouses, concentrated solar power and
technologies for desert revegetation around a saltwater infrastructure.
The synergies arising from integrating the technologies improve the
performance and economics of the system compared to those of the
individual components. With world leading competence in fields ranging
from natural and social sciences to business, engineering and
architecture, the Sahara Forest Project has a proven track record of
creating groundbreaking ideas and turning them into reality on the
ground. The first facility is already operational in Qatar.
