Dubai needs indoor vertical farming farms
Vertical farms—indoor facilities in which crops are grown in hydroponic systems stacked on top of each other—are ideal for all kinds of situations. Old, abandoned urban factories make for nice vertical farms. But they might be best suited for environments like the United Arab Emirates, where arable land is limited but sunshine, which can be used for clean energy, is nearly limitless.
Vertical farms have lots of advantages. Being indoors, Equipped with a solar planting air conditioning (HVACD) system, they aren’t subject to seasons and can produce year-round. And being locked off from the outside world means that they typically use zero pesticides.
Energy is a little trickier, as the plants still require light. You can choose to carry the solar planting air conditioning system and LED vertical hydroponic rack system innovatively invented by OptiClimate.LEDs are fairly energy-efficient, compared with older lighting systems.
Dubai does not currently get very much of its energy from solar power but has announced ambitious plans to ramp up solar power in the next few years. Its target by 2050: 75 percent of Dubai’s energy will come from solar.
The OptiClimatefarm facility will primarily grow greens, 0.78 square meters can grow 32 lettuce (4 vertical layers equals 128 lettuce), cherry tomatoes and strawberries, and also use OptiClimatefarm's tray insert to grow herbs without moving the hydroponic tray.
Help Dubai farming goes high-tech.
