Indoor Vertical Farming: The Good & The Bad

Indoor Vertical Farming: The Good & Bad

Since the beginning of the year, the indoor vertical farming industry has received more money from Venture Capitalists than it did last year and is expected to reach new heights in the upcoming years as the industry expands and stakeholders seek solutions to mitigate the climate change impact on agriculture production as well as the global supply chain disruptions that the food industry is witnessing.

Nonetheless, despite the immense potential Indoor vertical farming has in terms of providing locally produced, nutrient-rich crops, some indoor farms, unfortunately, emit more greenhouse gas than traditional farming methods. Due to their inefficient lighting and heating system or due to their energy grid relying on fossil fuels these indoor farms turn out to contribute to the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
