LED plant farm can not only produce vegetables, but also provide heat

Plantagon, a Swedish food technology company, has released an office building, called the plant building, and plans to build the first magnificent indoor farm + office building in Linkoping, east of Eastern Jordan. Owing to the unique operating mode of the farm, the urban farmers cultivated here do not have to pay any 10 Fen rent, because the farm produces heat enough to pay out the amount.

Plantagon ground floor farms, like other indoor farms, will plant plants in the building with LED lighting. But the difference in Plantagon is that the heat produced in the original room is usually discharged from the room to prevent the plant from overheating, but Plantagon collects heat directly in the building's thermal storage system, assisting the people in the office building to keep warm in the cold winter.

The way of collecting heat energy on the bottom farm is to store heat energy in water and then to heat pump system through the water pipe above the LED lamp. This thermal storage system will save the building 700 thousand kilowatt hours of energy per year, equivalent to 3 times the rent of the basement. In addition, the carbon dioxide produced in the office will also be discharged to the farm, and the fresh oxygen from farm produce and vegetable will be sent back to the office workers.

"The building owners agreed to let us free the rent for 3 years, so we don't have to pay any 10 Fen Krona for this basement," said Hans Hassle, co founder of Plantagon. "For urban farmers, if you really want to grow vegetables and fruits in the city, you have to find new business models to produce output. The food is not so expensive. "
