A company from Novosibirsk has developed a technology for growing fresh greens for regions with unfavorable weather conditions, for northern deliveries, food organizers in the extractive industries, as well as for residents of megalopolises and the HORECA market.
The company is interested in finding a partner for joint R&D; for testing, laboratory testing, certification, obtaining a license; for co-production.

The technology was developed to grow fresh herbs in regions with adverse weather conditions, for Severniy Zavoz (deliveries of goods to northern Russia), food suppliers in the extractive industries, residents of megalopolises, and the HORECA market. Nowadays the leafy greens and berries are delivered to these regions from other areas. It worsens their vitamin and mineral composition.
The developers estimate that the GREEN KITCHEN vertical system located on an area of 30 sq.m will be able to produce up to 5 tons of products per year in any weather (from -55°С to + 45°С). The air and water mixture recirculation system consumes 20 times less heat and water than an industrial greenhouse. An average resource consumption is 20 liters of water and 125 kW per day.
• The company developed a biological method for water and soil purification with the help of water hyacinth (eichornia). Using this plant, it is possible to utilize a plenty of different pollutants from wastewater of various enterprises and improve the water composition in natural aquatic systems.
Studies on the disposal of classic pollutants (nitrates, phosphates, COD, BOD, ammonium nitrogen, heavy metals, etc.) were carried out along with the studies on the eichornia ability to utilize specific pollutants typical of certain enterprises, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). It is the sixth toxin in the SuperToxic database. Eichornia plants actively vegetated with the initial concentration 1000 times exceeding the maximum permissible one. In ten days they reduced the concentration of PCBs by 10 times. The subsequent cultivation of water hyacinth reduced the concentration of PCBs to zero. A system of cascade bioponds was developed for industrial-scale biological treatment. It allows to purify water with dissolved PCBs step by step to the maximum permissible amount.

The company is involved in development of a reagent-free drinking water treatment system as well.
The developments are being tested in the Russian Federation, India, and China.
