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:

  • Multilayer adaptive vertical mechanism that maximizes plant production per unit volume

  • Ability to grow plants of different sizes and growth rates

  • Design and engineering of the greenhouse facility for easy sowing and picking of plants

  • Control per shelf of atmospheric chemical composition

  • Control per shelf of temperature and humidity

  • Control per shelf of lowest energy consumption

  • Automated delivery of nutrients per shelf and monitor of crop growth

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
