Addressing Global Challenges
Collection and Reuse of Transpiration Using Air Conditioning
Due to population growth and industrial development, water consumption is projected to increase into the year 2050. As a result, more than 5 billion people are estimated to have challenges in accessing fresh water. Our technology allows for the reduction of water usage necessary to cultivate 1kg of lettuce to approximately one percent of conventional farming, and consequently contribute towards the alleviation of water shortage.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Technological Innovation Serving People
Techno Farm Keihanna utilizes IoT and technology to reduce employee labor hours by approximately 50%, compared to conventional vertical farms. Integration of tech and human labor allows for reduction in work burden on the agricultural population, and keeps a corporate structure that is both comfortable to work and economically viable.
Reduction of Food Loss
High Yield and High Standards of Hygiene
Our lettuce boasts a very high yield rate, compared to the 50~60% yield rate of conventional farming, leading to great reduction in food loss. Furthermore, our high hygiene standards ensure extended freshness of our products, contributing to reduction of food waste as well.
Towards a Sustainable Future
Vertical Farm Educational Tours
We provide educational factory tours for schools and educational institutions. During these tours, children and students not only have a possibility to observe firsthand our vertical farm operations but are also exposed to and given an opportunity to think about global food and agricultural issues.*Currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Occupational Experience Programs
We provide local junior high school students with opportunities for occupational experience at our vertical farm. Not only do the students build their understanding of vertical farm operations, the program also seeks to build their appreciation for work and its rewards.*Currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.
