An innovative closed-system for crop cultivation (indoor farming in modules of 30 m2) that, thanks to advanced agricultural technologies – agtech, monitors data and artificial intelligence and uses the wasted energy from buildings and their CO2 emissions for crop production.

This innovation stems from four years of market research and investigation, backed by Instituto Superior Técnico and MIT Portugal. Its primary target market is large buildings in urban areas (offices, shopping centres, hospitals, hotels, etc.) that serve meals and have high energy consumption and food wastage.
