International, during a formal ceremony at the Tonji University on
July 4th
"I am more than happy to co-ordinate and manage this project, together with
Prof. Chen of our faculty of Agriculture at Tongji. We believe that we are in an
ideal position, with our advanced research in design innovation, all agricultural
areas, as well as in urban planning, to help Plantagon develop and eventually

The Plantagon greenhouse is designed for vertical agriculture of vegetables in
urban areas. Plantagon intends to develop integrated solutions for energy,
excess heat, waste, CO
and water in cooperation with partners.
"We feel that there is a need to develop new business models and services
connected to commercial projects. An important aspect is to research to what
extent a greenhouse can become a focal point for consumers and producers,
including food retail and grocery stores, etc.", says Hans Hassle.
Plantagon International is active in the sector urban agriculture and is a global
innovation leader in vertical farming. Plantagon's vertical greenhouse
minimizes the need for energy, water and pesticides. The negative
environmental impact of the greenhouses is very low, and since the products
are delivered directly to city consumers, the transportation costs are also
minimized. The concept is simple and appealing: daily fresh organic vegetables
delivered directly to consumers.
