Eden Green Technology, a privately held vertical agriculture company based in Fort Worth, Texas, has laid the foundation stone for a multi-million dollar greenhouse in addition to its original facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. This facility is being developed with $ 12 million from existing investors.
The new facility is set to continue the company’s journey of providing a more sustainable means of feeding people around the world.
Eden Green differs from other similar offerings with improved scalability compared to other vertical growing methods with lower technology. Another benefit is that these plants operate in 99% sunshine and recycle up to 7,500 gallons of water every month. Greenhouses of this type usually rely on LED lighting.
In a press release, Eddy Badrina, the company’s CEO noted, “If the pandemic has taught us anything, our communities must work together to make smart, sustainable, and resource-efficient decisions to achieve a better future.” … The fact is that land, water and energy are not used efficiently to produce and distribute our food. If we are to be responsible shepherds for future generations, we must adopt solutions that maximize the productive yield and profitability of our limited resources. “
The ability of these facilities to adapt to almost any 1.5 acre property in the world, as well as the ability to produce 11 to 13 crops per year, help set the company apart from competitors and traditional farming practices.
These greenhouses could potentially cut the time it takes for food to reach people’s shelves from weeks to days. This type of technology could be of great benefit to people around the world as food insecurity is still a massive problem around the world.
With food technology becoming a growing market for investors and startups alike, Eden Green Technology appears to be gearing up for a dominant position in the space – no puns.
