Fertilecity has a new doctor in the house! Congratulations to Dr. Mireia Ercilla on defending her dissertation "Air, food and soilless substrate quality assessment in rooftop agriculture".
This doctoral thesis aims to fill these gaps by addressing the following research questions:
Question 1: Does atmospheric heavy metal pollution in cities contaminate soilless crops from RA and RTGs?
Question 2: Are the biological air conditions in RTGs adequate to provide safe working environments? And in the case of i-RTGS, can its air be recirculated while ensuring safe environment for building users?
Question 3: Are we using adequate substrates for urban agriculture to mitigate the effects of climate change and increase resilience to drought?
Question 4: What is the consumer's perception of RA and products grown in these systems?

La implementación de huertos urbanos en las azoteas de los edificios permitiría producir alimentos agrícolas frescos, sanos y sostenibles para garantizar la soberanía alimentaria de las ciudades, cada vez más pobladas. Así se desprende de la investigación sobre agricultura urbana desarrollada por el Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) en el marco del proyecto Fertilecity, cuyos resultados se presentaron ayer con la participación de un centenar de personas procedentes de instituciones públicas, privadas y asociaciones.
