Space V

Space V is an innovative start-up, a spin-off of the University of Genoa; it owns the international patents of the “Adaptive Multilayer Greenhouse” (AMG) architecture, which holds the promise of greatest efficiency in producing fresh vegetable food in space settlements.

The distinctive feature of the AMG greenhouse is its capability of progressively moving the distance between the cultivation shelves of the vertical farm according to the level of plants growth, maintaining distinct microclimates for each shelf, thus maximizing the production yield per unit volume and unit time, greatly reducing the overall energy usage.
