We are facing a global food crisis. By 2050, population growth is expected to create a 70% increase in food demand. But a shortage in agricultural land and the changing climate are threatening crops and livelihoods.
Recognizing this, Tokyo-based agritech startup PLANTX has created an alternative to traditional farming methods.
“Our goal is to realize a food production system that is environmentally friendly, sustainable and resilient to climate change, while providing more delicious, safe and healthy food,” said Kosuke Yamada, PLANTX’sPresident and CEO.
Designed using Dassault Systèmes’ industry solution experience Digital Equipment Continuity on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on Cloud, PLANTX’s innovative ‘closed-type’ plant factory – named the ‘Culture Machine’ – is sealed and features more precise environmental control than conventional plant factories. This setup allows for precise control over the growing environment and stable, highly reproducible cultivation. It is also possible to set the optimum environment for multiple plant species individually. The result is a highly efficient and sustainable way of producing food.
