BioPod container solution for vertical farming

Easy healthy food, reduced waste, circular economy, vertical farming, hydroponic

BioPod solution is a vegetable Ecosystem, where only energy, food waste and water are needed to produce vegetables. As a circular economy solution, BioPod is also energy- and water-efficient.

The BioPod solution is a closed-loop food production operating on a household- or a community level and integrated as a new urban farm concept of Regen villas/Agrihoods or larger-scale commercial food production in Eco-friendly industrial agro-food parks.

A BioPod Greenhouse of 2000m² is installed in Skive (Jutland) in Denmark and similar will also be installed in Shouguang City (Shangdong Province) and in Jilin City (Jilin Province) in China.  We have a BioPod solution installed in a Tiny House in Odder (Jutland). Both BioPod for residential housing and for greenhouses will also be installed in an Ecovillage project in Chibi, Hubei Province of China.


Energy-, water-efficiency and circular economy.
