“Power Plant” is a conceptual product which can be used to produce energy out of garbage.
Generating energy out of garbage is quite common nowadays. But it is a job wasteful of time, labour and energy. The garbage is and the energy is transported back from the power station to the houses. Both processes cost a lot of energy. With “Power Plant” Guus made a product that shows how nearby energy production takes place. Guus placed a stirling engine on top of a compost bin of 1m3 that runs on the warmth that’s produced by the compost. The temperature can reach up to 70C°. He has made three applications to use this small “Power Plant”, namely in the garden, where the stirling engine works as a water pump or dynamo: A hot tub, a garden shower and a reading chair with reading lamp.
