Belgium: Diving into microalgae cultivation

Urban Crop Solutions (UCS) has undertaken a project for a client-focused on cultivating microalgae in an indoor farming environment. The client's goal is to produce microalgae to enhance the sustainability of its business. To further improve its production, a customized controlled indoor farm, which can later be scaled, is essential.

After an extensive search for suitable indoor farming partners, UCS was selected to meet the specific needs of the client. The agtech presented a design that met all the requirements. Accordingly, UCS designed and built a unique fertigation and irrigation system, including a customized dosing capability to meet specific needs. With the implementation of spectrum-adjustable LED lighting, the full extent of innovation and collaboration became visible, allowing to adjust the light spectrum to the specific desires and needs of the client.

"This collaboration shows how customization and innovation can go hand in hand to meet specific needs. It is a pleasure to see how our technology contributes to the growth and success of our partners," Jean-Pierre Coene, CEO of Urban Crop Solutions shared.

The client also expressed its satisfaction: "We are pleased with the quality of the cooperation and impressed by the precision and attention to detail. The customized solution provided by Urban Crop Solutions has exceeded our expectations and represents a promising device to continue the industrial scaling of our production."

This collaboration highlights the power of customization and trust in creating innovative solutions within the indoor farming industry. A solution that, alongside innovation, must be scalable and commercially viable for growth.
