Demotech's design initiatives listed here have priority

  • The Rope pump, effective and reliable water lifting for the small husbandry
  • The WindDrive (D7), small-scale harvesting of wind energy with an unusual mix of low- and high-tech means
  • Green Walls, reuse of waste water in arid urban conditions. Many square meters of irrigated gardening area is created in trays hanging from the walls of a house
  • Sustainble Housing and Living (D35), effective DIY construction of a comfortable house build with little environmental impact
  • Izigo, automated individual public urban transport. By using the tricks of Internet a better accessability of all parts of a town is accieved. In this way better conditions of development can be reached, also for run down quarters of a city
  • Welding of plastic sheet offers the opportunity for the small farmer to increase income by local processing and packaging of the harvest.
  • NightReader, a reading light, offers 1 billion off-grid students four hours extra study time er day. Manufacture of these reading lights as an in-school activity.
  • Bathroombox (D53)http://www.demotech.org/design/designA.html?d=43, a modern bathroom facility. Integrated in a system to recycle human waste while using a totally safe hygienic method that produces methane gas and fertilizer for urban agriculture.
