A TURNING POINT IN GREENHOUSE FARMING
SpaceV designs and develops the revolutionary adaptive greenhouse suitable for farming in space, also in a micro gravity environment.
The next generation of space greenhouses
We develop the next generation of agrifood production devices able to increase crop productivity in space and significantly reduce operating costs and energy consumption.
Our innovative technology and our focus on product reliability and safety fits very well with the demand of space agencies and of the rapidly growing commercial space markets.
THE Multilayer Adaptive System
The multilayer adaptive greenhouse is based on an industrial patent and has a number of features that differentiate it from standard vertical greenhouses:
The SpaceV greenhouse features an air exchange mechanism with the cabin which captures the CO2 produced by the crew and returns the O2 produced by the plants.
The Multilayer micro conditioning system
The Adaptive SpaceV Greenhouse is equipped with a separate micro-conditioning system for each shelf, which has significant advantages. In fact, it allows growing on each shelf non-homogeneous types of plants requiring different temperatures and humidity rates and minimizes the consumption of electricity. This aspect directly reflects on the volumetric air flow used to maintain a constant thermo-hygrometric condition of the crops and therefore affects energy consumption and ultimately the cost per unit of product harvested. Assuming constant air exchanges every hour, the comparison between the Adaptive Space Greenhouse and the static one shows a 45% reduction of energy consumption
