Mushroom-based building insulation

High-performance, non-toxic insulation panels you can grow? That’s what a London-based biomanufacturing company has developed! They’ve found that mycelium, the root structure of mushrooms, is perfect for preventing spread of fire, blocking out sound and even preventing heat loss.

The future of agriculture will be driven by data

Climate change, along with the measures for tackling it, calls for big changes in how the agricultural sector operates. An increasing amount of Earth observation data, together with rapidly evolving remote sensing technology, is making it possible to adopt a more advantageous, data-driven approach.

Using space technologies to tackle climate change

Satellite technology has long been used for weather forecasting and preparing us for extreme weather events. Now, frontier technologies such as Space 2.0 systems are taking things further, gathering and relaying data related to climate change which, among other things, can help farmers improve yields.

Satellite mapping makes agriculture more sustainable

Satellite mapping, using satellite images to build a composite map of the Earth’s surface, offers a vital source of information. This allows farmers to better monitor their fields, manage their crops and ultimately improve yields and efficiency. This can lead to more sustainable farming.

Flying robot uses Artificial Intelligence to pick ripe fruit

A flying robot uses Artificial Intelligence to locate fruit trees and algorithms to find the fruit among the foliage and classify its size and ripeness. After choosing the fruit, the robot works out the best way to access it and uses its picking arm to grasp the fruit. This way food waste will be reduced.

Sustainable farming can be achieved with LED light shows

GROW is a new light installation of 20,000 square meter of red and blue light waves. It shows “dancing lights” across a huge field of leeks. Certain combinations of blue, red and ultraviolet light enhance plant growth. And it works on all crops. So the use of pesticides can be reduced by up to 50%.
