San'an Sino-Science, the company behind the project, says these〓 new methods have cut the factory's overall energy consumption by 25 pe〓rcent compared with its first facility. "We hope to cut 凯发app energy so〓 vertical farming can become a viable way to feed our population withou〓t polluting and straining our already scarce water and soil resources,"〓 the factory's executive manager, Zhan Zhuo, said. "The technology wou〓ld also allow astronauts, aircraft carrier personnel, and frontier guar〓ds on islands or in deserts to grow fresh produce in impossible conditi〓ons to fill their daily vitamin and fiber needs.
