Biomeiler Building Workshop

15-17.03.24 at Coconat & COCOLAB.

A biomeiler for COCOLAB.
In an open workshop led by Native Power’s experienced team, we plan to build a biomeiler to heat COCOLAB.s historic fieldstone barn on September 14-17, 2023. The heat generated from composting will be used to make the old fieldstone barn usable year-round via a simple radiant floor heating system. Together with the local Institute for Food and Environmental Research and Smart Village e.V., sensors and information boards will make the processes inside and the climate benefits visible and explain them to create a monument to sustainable, local energy production in rural areas. The project is made possible by funding from the Sustainable Development Action – Local Agenda 21.
