Some of Our Projects

Tiamat Sciences

Tiamat is a biotech company that is manufacturing animal-free protein by combining biotechnology, vertical farming, and computational design. By using the power of plants to replace traditional bioreactors, they are growing the next generation of biomolecules to serve multiple emerging industries.

IKEA

After the success of their pilot project with a FarmPro as part of their sustainability commitment, IKEA has scaled up to and started operating their first ModuleX plant factory at their store in Malmö, Sweden. All of the greens grown within the ModuleX are being supplied to and served at the store restaurant.

Bread on Mars

A consortium led by Puratos, a global bakery supply company, in collaboration with Urban Crop Solutions is researching how to bake bread on Mars. Aside from carrying our research at their own research centre, Urban Crop Solutions has installed three custom FarmLabs at Puratos’ headquarters near Brussels, Belgium.

Our Contribution to Sustainability

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are a collection of 17 global goals, that were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Indoor vertical farming contributes substantially to eight of these 17 goals.

Winner of SDG Award

We are the proud recipients of the SDG Award from the EU Tech Chamber. We were endorsed for our holistic approach to bringing food production closer to the point of consumption through indoor vertical farming, and our research into innovative waste reduction and recycling methods to make agriculture more circular.
