The Green Float Concept Uses Renewable Energy To Float

Conceived by Japanese Technology firm Shimizu, the Green Float concept involves a series of mini floating cities that house between 10,000 to 50,000 people. These floating cities harness hi-tech green technology and involve a number of cells capable of reducing carbon emissions by 40 per cent. These cells are freed to float on the Pacific Ocean and join together to form cities and towns.

Each individual cell involves huge towers surrounded by grassland and forests, built from super-light alloys derived from magnesium in seawater.

The concept was also displayed at a university conference and Shimizu is expecting to create the first cells by the year 2025.
