The future of urban farming has arrived
Enriching project #15,789 of 31,000. Sweco is developing alternative ways to farm locally and space-efficiently.
Today’s climate changes are placing new demands and providing inspiration for innovative solutions. The company Plantagon lies behind an idea for urban agriculture in a vertical greenhouse. This method makes it possible to farm in an urban environment and thereby reduce transports. The first greenhouse will be built in Linköping, Sweden. The greenhouse will use surplus CO2 from the Tekniska Verken biogas plant and waste heat from the district heating system. Sweco’s architects and engineers are working on the design and technical solutions for the greenhouse.
