Having studied eco-friendly farming techniques for 20 years, agricultural corporation Eco Farm City has developed what it calls “KDS convergence farming.” The KDS convergence farming combines primary industries of agriculture, fisheries, livestock, timber, and regional specialties with secondary industries of manufacturing and processing, as well as the tertiary industry of service.

Eco Farm City plans to produce and process pesticide-free food rich in minerals throughout the year at its smart farm plant factories and export them to the world. The KDS convergence farming is offered in three types: independent passive building, BIPV (building-integrated photovoltaics), and smart energy.

The independent passive building system has a solar hybrid heat pump. A heat pump is a device used to transfer thermal energy from one place to another and is more energy-efficient than conventional heating or cooling. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has stressed in his book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” that heat pumps should be more widely used for carbon neutrality.

Eco Farm City also uses a BIPV solar energy system, a heat exchange ventilation system, and smart energy from sunlight, heat pumps, and microalgae.
