Desert bloom – The violet plant, Limonium axillare, takes salt up from the soil and excretes it through its leaves, a process that could be used to desalinate soil.
Hope beacon – The facility uses concentrated solar power plant, which is a system that focuses sunlight onto a small area with mirrors.
Transplanting nature – Virginia Corless, the science and development manager, working in the greenhouse. She says Qatar's environment acts as a harsh testing ground for the technologies.
Liquid assets – With the algae pond, researchers are finding ways to cultivate the organisms without the usual high costs and geographic constraints.
Model system – The design of the project is to have several technologies working together to address many issues at once.
