Abstract

A Concurrent Engineering (CE) study at DLR has investigated the Vertical Farming concept. A Vertical Farm (VF) is the cultivation of plants in skyscrapers. Here, a significant increase in production of fresh vegetables and fruits per square meter footprint compared to conventional greenhouse can be achieved by implementing so-called Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA) technologies. The CE study objectives were to determine the technical and economic feasibility of a Vertical Farm. DLR aimed to apply its knowledge of CEA Technologies in space systems to prepare and present the first engineering design of a Vertical Farm. A 37 story building was designed with a multi-crop production strategy.
