FEW WORDS ABOUT US
Urban Ponics is a Dutch Green-tech company that develops and implements new technologies and concepts connected to new Urban challenges.
41 mega-cities with more than 10 million inhabitants
By 2030, the world will have 41 mega-cities with more than 10 million inhabitants. Increasing urbanization leads to increasing problems for the supply of food, clean water, waste management, and people’s health. Mega-cities should become more self-sufficient, energy neutral and take care of sanitation, and waste issues. Urban Ponics is a Dutch AG-tech company that develops and deploys new technologies and concepts related to these new Urban challenges.
"Our mission is not just feeding the world but to really nurture it in the process"
Our Full Spectrum Urban Farming Concepts:
Joint Partnerships with professional growers, retail and foodservice in order to sell products according to their nutritional content instead of selling per kilo.
Nutritional Supplement and Natural Enhancer that stimulates the metabolism of plants, animals, and humans and boosts their immune system
Sales and implementation of hybrid cultivation systems for the production of vegetables, fruits and herbs in Urban Areas.
Full Spectrum Farming
Is a new way of farming with the focus on the production of real nutritious food. Tests show that vegetables produced under the Full Spectrum Farming technique, contain more minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.
It is not accurate to rate these products per kilo or per piece anymore. They should be rated for the nutrition they provide to us and we should be held accountable for it. Urban Ponics introduces the UP-equivalent; the sum of vitamins, minerals and trace-elements, obtained by measuring different biomarkers such as Carotenoids, vitamin K1, and other trace elements.
The higher the UP-equivalent, the more nutritional value, the higher the price paid per product to the farmer and the healthier it is for the consumer.
Consumers will pay for nutrition instead of paying for water and cellulose!
Clean Water for People
Plants, animals and humans are often embodied. Sometimes we forget that water in itself has also a body we all should respect. Lakes, rivers and oceans are just three examples of this nature.
Plastic is one of the main pollutants of waterbodies and many initiatives tackle this issue altogether, but we forget that contamination is much worse than just plastic pollution.
Waterbodies can perish as well, due to overload of city sewage, industrial discharges and artificial fertilizers. Lakes, rivers and oceans become sick and become toxic for plants, animals and humans.
Soil Maker At Work
The Soil Maker turns kitchen waste into valuable composted soil. It is a natural process where enzymes and activated microorganisms degrade the food waste in a period of approximately 2 weeks. 300 Kilos of waste per day will turn into 150 kilos of soil. The soil has a commercial value and can be used in the greenhouses to grow little plantlets and seedlings. Other capacities are 100 and 200 kilos per day.
The machine does not require additional (electrical) heat because the activity of microorganisms provides the energy for degradation. The Soil Makers operates full continuedly and is easy to maintain and operate.
