Sustainable Solutions Center at Rockwood Summit

06/18/2014

Space + Form Architects was chosen to be the architectural firm for the Monsanto Education Center for Sustainable Solutions. The center will be housed in a new building constructed on Rockwood Summit High School’s campus and will include an area where students and advisors can plant row crops to study how plants such as corn and soybeans produce a renewable source of fuel.

The new building will provide space for a Bio-Diesel Fuel Processor, that the students built, and classroom space where students can perform experiments to test and improve the quality of the bio-diesel fuel that they are producing. They are currently producing Bio-Diesel fuel from waste vegetable oil that they collect from the schools kitchen and plan to start growing crops on an area adjacent to the building to use producing Bio-Diesel fuel.
