Thank you, Miriam, for your support!

I must honestly admit that I am a little relieved to NOT be within the official winning team, as I am still somewhat new to the community. And a little overwhelmed with the responses :-)

But the idea itself has leapfrogged into a new dimension, already!
Right now, we are planning to combine it with a water-filtering-system. Let's see where this leads to - it has been an amazing journey so far.

As some team-members are off to Southamerica by this weekend we will continue in April altogether. In the meantime I am building that biogas-micro-powerplant and a website and do some more illustrations. So we will continue anyhow :D

To keep you updated - my EMail ist simon@studiopolarstern.de (Studio Northstar in English)

Enjoy this life, so long,
Simon
